The other three nominees in the Asc’s theatrical-film category were Matthew Libatique for “A Star Is Born,” Robbie Ryan for “The Favourite” and Linus Sandgren for “First Man.”
Missing from the list was James Laxton for “If Beale Street Could Talk” and Rachel Morrison for “Black Panther,” both of whom are considered strong Oscar contenders in the cinematography category.
Last year, Morrison became the first woman ever nominated in the Asc’s feature-film category, and then the first to be nominated for the cinematography Oscar.
