Yesterday, the American Society of Cinematographers announced their nominations for the ASC Awards, recognizing outstanding cinematography on television. Once again, Game of Thrones made the cut!
The complete nominee list for the category of “Episode of a Regular Series:”

Game of Thrones season four scored two nominations for the award last year with both Anette Haellmigk (“The Children”) and Fabian Wagner (“Mockingbird”) being recognized. The award ultimately went to Boardwalk Empire.
