As if HBO needed more nominations under their belt during their already active awards season, the network picked up four nods as part of the American Society of Cinematographers’ Outstanding Achievement Awards, which yesterday announced the contenders in their three television categories.
Boardwalk Empire picked up two nominations in the One-Hour Episodic Television category, Mildred Pierce secured a nod in the Television Movie/Miniseries contest, and the recently axed Bored to Death got a nod in the Half-Hour category.
Boardwalk will face PBS’s Downton Abbey, ABC’s Pan Am, and NBC’s Chase in its category, while Bored to Death faces stiff competition from Modern Family, Californication, Man Up, and R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.
ASC film nominations will be announced Jan. 10, and the awards will be handed out Feb. 12. Full nominations below:
