What three words describe the feeling of being the first woman to receive an Oscar nomination in the cinematography category? “Fulfilling, inspiring, terrifying,” Rachel Morrison said Sunday on the red carpet.
“And to be the first is, obviously, there’s an extra pressure. It’s momentous. I know there are women looking up to me now, and hopefully this will open doors for people across all budgets, across all projects.”
Morrison just might be back next year, as she’s the director of photography on director Ryan Coogler’s hit “Black Panther.”
