Cinematographers honor 'Slumdog': Anthony Dod Mantle wins big at ASC Awards

  • Print
"Slumdog Millionaire" continued its winning ways on Sunday night when the American Society of Cinematographers awarded the film's d.p., Anthony Dod Mantle its feature film prize at the 23rd Annual ASC Awards ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The award follows top honors bestowed on "Slumdog" by SAG, DGA, PGA, WGA and the Art Directors Guild.
The Brit d.p. -- an Oscar nominee whose largely hand-held work consisted of a combination of digital and 35 mm imagery -- also has won cinematography kudos from BAFTA and Camerimage, the Polish film fest devoted to the art of cinematography.
In television, Nelson Cragg won the episodic TV award for his work on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation ("For Gedda"), while David Stockton took home the TV movie/miniseries/pilot award for "Eleventh Hour." Both shows air on CBS.
The evening also included a slew of honorary laurels, including the ASC Board of Governors Award presented to "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan; the ASC Lifetime Achievement Award to Jack Green, best known for his d.p. work with Clint Eastwood, who presented the award; the ASC International Achievement Award to Aussie lenser Donald McAlpine ("Romeo + Juliet," "Moulin Rouge!"); the ASC Career Achievement in Television Award to Robert Liu ("Desperate Housewives"); and the ASC Presidents Award to Isidore Mankofsky.
Other presenters included actors Amy Adams and Simon Baker, director Paul Mazursky and d.p. Wally Pfister, who was also a nominee for his work on "The Dark Knight."
