If you thought the Best Cinematography race for this year’s Oscars was all sealed up, you might want to reconsider.
The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) handed out their wins today for the past year in film and television, including a big shock in their Theatrical Release category as they awarded Erik Messerschmidt for his work on Mank. For a while now, it seemed like the category was secured for Joshua James Richards and Nomadland, but things might be a little more rocky now with a possible upset in the works. In the meantime, Messerschmidt spoke to Joey here, so give that a listen.
