‘Tár’ Wins Golden Frog – The Hollywood Reporter

0 0

Florian Hoffmeister’s “authentic, intimate observation[al]” lensing of Tár, the Todd Field drama starring Cate Blachett as an EGOT-winning German conductor in a downward spiral, topped the EnergaCamerimage main competition by winning its Golden Frog.

Also Saturday during the closing ceremony of the 30th edition of the international cinematography film festival, runners-up were DP Darius Khondji, who won the Silver Frog for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s personal Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths; and DP Jamie Ramsay, who collected the Bronze Frog for Oliver Hermanus-helmed drama Living, which premiered in January during Sundance. Bardo also claimed the FIPRESCI critics prize, and the Audience Award went to Mandy Walker’s bold lensing of Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis.

Festival director Marek Żydowicz presented the Festival Director’s Award for the impact of a film’s images. These were awarded to Luhrmann and Walker for their collaboration on Elvis, and director Joe Kosinski and DP Claudio Miranda for Top Gun: Maverick.

Camerimage’s main competition has become a bellwether for what’s to come in the cinematography Oscar race. In two of the past three years, the winner of Camerimage’s Golden Frog has gone on to earn an Oscar nomination in cinematography: 2019’s Joker and 2020’s Nomadland. A year ago, the winners of Camerimage’s Silver and Bronze Frogs, The Tragedy of Macbeth and Dune, respectively, were Oscar-nominated, with Dune claiming the Academy Award.

During the closing ceremony, cinematographer Stephen H. Burum (Hoffa) accepted the festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Additional honorees included Andrzej Seweryn (Schindler’s List), who was honored for special achievement in the art of acting; Sarah Greenwood (Darkest Hour), for special achievement for a production designer; Joseph Kahn, for achievement in music videos for a director; and cinematographer Vance Burberry, for achievement in music videos.

The festival concluded with a screening of Steven Spielberg’s The Fablemans, lensed by Janusz Kaminski.
