Stockton earned his ASC trophy for Eleventh Hour (2009), as well as nominations for Nikita (2011) and Chase (2012). Goi’s double recognition makes these his third and fourth nominations. He was previously acknowledged for The Fixer (1999) and Judas (2005). These are the fourth ASC nominations for both Manley and Morgenthau. Manley earned kudos for Threat Matrix (2004), CSI: NY (2005) and Mad Men (2011). Morgenthau received nominations for The Five People You Meet in Heaven (2005), Life on Mars (2009) and Family Limitation (2011). Levy has two prior nominations for photographing 24 (2002) and The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2005). Price was a nominee for Ugly Betty (2010). Bolygo, Spragg, Hoffmeister, Reinhart, Stoffers, Glassing and Lipson are all first time nominees. FOX programs led the pack with three nominations, followed by FX, HBO and Cinemax with two. Showtime, AMC, ABC, NBC, PBS and History Channel are also represented. “There is an incredible amount of outstanding work being done for television, which is seeing a resurgence in compelling story-telling thanks to a wider landscape for distribution,” adds Lighthill. "It’s exciting to see what’s being done in the field. Audiences have a plethora of options now and these cinematographers have demonstrated superior skills in visual entertainment.” For information regarding the 27th ASC Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography visit
