ASC also said today that it is adding a new music video category alongside its traditional awards for feature films, episodic TV and documentaries.

“Since the emergence of the music videos, they have made a profound impact on how we tell stories in contemporary times,” said ASC President Shelly Johnson. “We want to celebrate the cinematographers who set the bar so high, and show us new and innovative ways of storytelling year in and year out.”

Honorary ASC awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award and Board of Governors Award, are TBA and also will be presented at the awards ceremony.

Last year’s ASC Awards saw Mandy Walker take the top movie prize for Elvis, marking the first time a woman had won for Theatrical Feature Film. That category’s ASC winner has gone on to win the Academy Award nearly half of the time — 17 times in its 37 years. But Elvis lost the Best Cinematography Oscar to All Quiet on the Western Front.

The Old Man was a double winner on the TV side at the 37th annual ASCs.

Founded in 1919, the American Society of Cinematographers now has more than 420 members who have roots in some 20 countries.
