This morning, Bradford Young (“Arrival”), Linus Sandgren (“La La Land”), Greig Fraser (“Lion”), James Laxton (“Moonlight”), and Rodrigo Prieto (“Silence”) were nominated for Best Achievement in Cinematography (the same five nominated at this year’s ASC Awards). Of the five nominees, Prieto is the only previous Academy Award nominee. He was nominated for “Brokeback Mountain” in 2006.
