Roger Deakins' ASC Lifetime Achievement Award
Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC receives the Society’s Lifetime Achievemant Award for a body of work that reflects vision, purpose and a personal perspective.
After four decades behind the camera, Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC, is at the top of his game. “I think I’m doing work now that’s as good as I’ve ever done,” he says. His peers in the ASC clearly agree, as they will honor him next month with the Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
The ASC honor is the latest in an incredible run that has included double ASC Award nominations for two consecutive years, 2008 (for Revolutionary Road and The Reader) and 2007 (for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and No Country for Old Men). Indeed, Deakins’ presence looms so large at these ceremonies that when Robert Elswit, ASC accepted the 2007 ASC Award for There Will Be Blood, he suggested that the Society establish a special category for “films shot by Roger Deakins.” [...]
