‘Game of Thrones’ nominated for two awards from the American Society of Cinematographers

Season 7's "The Spoils of War" is one of two "Game of Thrones" episodes nominated for the 2017 American Society of Cinematographers awards.

Season 7’s “The Spoils of War” is one of two “Game of Thrones” episodes nominated for the 2017 American Society of Cinematographers awards.

With the Golden Globes having taken place on Sunday night, awards season for everything from film to television to theater is officially underway. To that end, the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has released nominations for its 2017 awards, and it’s no surprise that Game of Thrones — a show known for its striking visuals — has garnered not one but two nominations.

The ASC released the list of nominations yesterday, and two Thrones cinematographers representing two different episodes have been nominated: Robert McLachlan, for “The Spoils of War,” (episode 4) and Gregory Middleton, for “Dragonstone” (episode 1). Thrones was the only show in the non-commercial television category to receive two nominations. McLachlan and Middleton, in addition to being talented cinematographers, are long-time Thrones contributors — McLachlan first worked on the show for Season 3’s iconic episode “The Rains of Castamere,” while Middleton came in during Season 5’s “Kill The Boy.”

The winners will be announced at the 32nd annual ASC Awards on Feb. 17.

    1. Spoils of War Ep 4: Cinematographer Robert McLachlan should win for… Brienne ⚔️ Arya sparring scene.

      The shot of a cleaned-up Arya in her new warrior princess suit with Needle on one side of her built and her VS dagger on the other was…perfect.

    2. Congratulations 🎊 Robert McLachlan and Gregory Middleton. Thoroughly deserved and few a greater honour than being recognized by your peers. Here’s for the Win!

      So many standouts from Spoils eg the overhead aerial shot of Drogon ripping through the convoy, and that low glide over the Blackwater Rush, to capturing all that fire stuntpersons and tracking Bronn through the mayhem. Wow.

    3. Nice! Congratulations to both 🎉 I think Spoils of War was a true gem at what (?) 40 something min running time. The cinematography was really good. And Jaime’s horse charge at Dany and Drogo was simply superb. It felt of epic proportions and like it should really be one of those old movie style 70MM Panavision cinema shot.

    4. I still don’t like (from that pic) that Dany goes into battle dressed like she is going to the debutante cotillion. Need Targ armor and for god sake a helm!
