Oscars 2018: Rachel Morrison Makes History With ‘Mudbound’

It took 90 years but Rachel Morrison has finally broken the ceiling. She became the first woman to be nominated by the Academy for best cinematography for the historical drama Mudbound, starring Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, Jason Mitchell, Rob Morgan, Jason Clarke, and supporting actress nominee Mary J. Blige.

Morrison will compete against Blade Runner 2049’s Roger Deakins, The Shape of Water’s Dan Lausten, Darkest Hour’s Bruno Delbonnel, and Dunkirk’s Hoyte van Hoytema.

Morrison made similar history two weeks ago with her nomination in the feature-film category at the American Society of Cinematographers Awards.
