american society of cinematographers awardsAs we predicted, Emmanuel Lubezki won the feature film award from the American Society of Cinematographers for "Gravity." It's his third award from the ASC, following victories for "Children of Men" (2006) and "The Tree of Life" (2011).

With an unprecedented seven nominees, the American Society of Cinematographers cited all five of this year's Oscar nominees for Best Cinematography -- Philippe Le Sourd ("The Grandmaster"), Bruno Delbonnel ("Inside Llewyn Davis"), Phedon Papamichael ("Nebraska"), and Roger Deakins ("Prisoners"), in addition to Lubezki. Rounding out ASC's list were Sean Bobbitt ("12 Years a Slave") and Barry Ackroyd ("Captain Phillips").

"Gravity" is also the overwhelming favorite to win at the Oscars, with 1/10 odds. It would be Lubezki's first win in six nominations from the academy.

Over its 28-year history, the ASC has predicted 110 of the 140 Oscar nominees, including getting all five of this year's contenders. However, the ASC choice for the best in the business has presaged the eventual winner at the Oscars only 13 times in 27 years. Indeed, of this year's three previous ASC champs -- Deakins, Lubezki, and Delbonnel -- none have yet won Oscars, despite a combined 18 nominations.

The academy has favored special-effects extravaganzas for the last four consecutive years: "Avatar" (2009), "Inception" (2010), "Hugo" (2011), and "Life of Pi" (2012). The ASC only agreed on one of those choices ("Inception"), while in the other years they chose films that were less effects-driven: "The White Ribbon" (2009), "Tree of Life" (2011), and "Skyfall" (2012).

The ASC also awarded accomplishments in television. Best Achievement in One-Hour Episodic Television went to Jonathan Freeman for the "Valar Dohaeris" episode of "Game of Thrones." Blake McClure won the Half-Hour TV prize for Comedy Central's "Drunk History" ("Detroit"). And Jeremy Benning won TV Movie/Miniseries honors for "Killing Lincoln."
