The American Society of Cinematographers has selected Angelina Jolie as the recipient of its 2018 ASC Board of Governors Award.
The presentation will be made at the 32nd annual ASC Awards for Outstanding Achievement on Feb. 17 at Hollywood & Highland’s Ray Dolby Ballroom.
The ASC Board of Governors Award is given to individuals in the industry whose body of work has made “significant and indelible contributions to cinema.” It is the only ASC Award not given to a cinematographer, and is reserved for filmmakers who have been champions for directors of photography and the visual art form.
“Angelina Jolie sets a high standard,” ASC president Kees van Oostrum said. “She is a true artist, with a strong vision and collaborative spirit. She has also entertained us through her work, but more importantly has brought significant social issues to our attention. For her wide-ranging accomplishments, we are honored to present her with our Board of Governors Award.”
Previous recipients of the ASC Board of Governors Award include Ridley Scott, Barbra Streisand, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Christopher Nolan, Warren Beatty, Francis Ford Coppola, Sally Field, Morgan Freeman, Ron Howard, Sydney Pollack, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg.
