"Avatar" Receives Outstanding Cinematography Nomination 


"Avatar" cinematographer Mauro Fiore (pictured) is one of the nominees of the 24th annual American Society of Cinematographers Outstanding Achievement Awards.

Fiore will compete with Barry Ackroyd for "The Hurt Locker," Dione Beebe for "Nine," Christian Berger for "The White Ribbon" and Robert Richardson for "Inglourious Basterds."

According to the ASC website:

All films eligible for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Oscar competition were candidates for the ASC Outstanding Achievement Award. Last year’s ASC winner in the feature category — Anthony Dod Mantle, BSC, DFF for Slumdog Millionaire — went on to take home the Academy Award.

Goi notes that art and craft of cinematography is a global language. Fiore was born in Italy, Berger is Austrian, Ackroyd is British, Beebe was born in Australia, and Richardson is a native of the United States.


The winner, who will likely take home an Oscar as well, will be announced Feb. 27.

My bet to win? "Avatar!" It's simply the most beautiful film last year!
