Oscar / Best Cinematography

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The cameramen of a film are honored with the Oscar for the best camera . From 1940 to 1967 (except 1958) the Oscars for black and white and color film were awarded separately, so there were two Oscars for the best cinematography.

Most frequently honored cameraman Joseph Ruttenberg and Leon Shamroy (4 wins each)
Most frequently nominated cameraman Charles Lang and Leon Shamroy (18 nominations each)
Most nominated cameraman without a win George J. Folsey (13 nominations)

In the table below, the winners are listed according to the year in which they were awarded.
