American Society of Cinematographers Oscars Life of Pi Lincoln Les Miserables Skyfall Anna Karenina movies entertainment news 13579086The American Society of Cinematographers nominated four of the likely Oscar nominees, including frontrunner "Life of Pi" as well as "Les Miserables," "Lincoln" and "Skyfall." The fifth slot went to "Anna Karenina" over "The Master" which is second on our list of Oscar contenders for Best Cinematography

Claudio Miranda ("Life of Pi") was nominated by the ASC in 2008 for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Danny Cohen ("Les Miserables") and Seamus McGarvey ("Anna Karenina") have one past ASC bid for working with these same directors on "The King's Speech" and "Atonement" respectively. 

Two-time ASC champ Roger Deakins ("The Shawshank Redemption," "The Man Who Wasn't There") earned his 11th nod for "Skyfall." He has yet to win an Oscar despite nine nods.  

Last year, the ASC snubbed four-time nominee Janusz Kaminski for his shooting of "War Horse," though this two-time Oscar champ -- "Schindler's List" (1993) and "Saving Private Ryan" (1998) -- contended at the Academy Awards. He picked up his fifth ASC bid for another Steven Spielberg picture ("Lincoln"). 

Among those snubbed this year by the ASC: Mihai Malamaire, Jr. for his lensing of "The Master." Our Experts have him in second place behind Miranda for the Oscars. Also missing is 10-time ASC nominee and three-time Oscar champ Robert Richardson ("Django Unchained") as well as two-time ASC contender Rodrigo Prieto ("Argo"). 

Over the 26-year history of these awards, the ASC 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. 

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