‘Skyfall’s Deakins wins American Society of Cinematographers Award


Roger Deakins won the 27th American Society of Cinematographers Award for outstanding achievement in feature film for “Skyfall” on Sunday evening.

Deakins previously won the ASC Award 18 years ago for “The Shawshank Redemption” and six years ago for “No Country for Old Men.”

The cinematographer, who earned his 10th Academy Award nomination for “Skyfall,” has never won an Oscar. Perhaps the ASC win will boost his chances to finally win the elusive Academy Award.
