ASC Awards 2012

Over the 26-year history of these awards, the American Society of Cinematographers' choice for the best in the business has presaged the eventual winner at the Oscars only 13 times. However, the ASC has predicted 101 of the 130 Oscar nominees.

Four of the five Oscar nominees for Best Cinematography were also cited by the ASC: "Anna Karenina" (Seamus McGarvey), "Lincoln" (Janusz Kaminski), "Life of Pi" (Claudio Miranda), and "Skyfall" (Roger Deakins).

The fifth nominee at ASC is "Les Miserables" (Dan Cohen). The Oscars opted instead for "Django Unchained" (Robert Richardson).

The ASC winner will be named on Feb.10 during the awards celebration at the Grand Ballroom of Hollywood & Highland.
