‘West Side Story’, ‘Snowfall’ Take Top Honors At Society Of Camera Operators Awards

Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story for 20th Century Studios and FX’s crime drama Snowfall claimed top honors at the Society Of Camera Operators Awards held virtually on Saturday night, with Mitch Dubin, SOC, and “B” Camera John “Buzz” Moyer, SOC taking home the award for Camera Operator of the Year in Film for their work on the former title, and Manolo Rojas, SOC, and “B” Camera Pauline Edwards, SOC claiming Camera Operator of the Year in Television for their work on the eighth episode of the latter’s fourth season.

Dubin and Moyer prevailed over competition that included Gilles Corbeil, SOC (Nightmare Alley); Matthew Moriarty, SOC (A Quiet Place Part II); David Thompson, SOC, with “B” Camera Ian Seabrook, SOC (Finch); and Mike Heathcote, SOC (The Many Saints of Newark). Rojas and Edwards, meanwhile, won out over teams including Mick Froehlich, SOC, with Remi Tournois, SOC (Hawkeye); Timothy Muir Spencer with “B” Camera Mike McEveety (For All Mankind); Reid Russell, SOC, with “B” Camera Jan Ruona, SOC (Blindspotting); and Gregor Tavenner with “B” Camera Alan Pierce, SOC (Succession).

This year marked the first time that the Society Of Camera Operators expanded its nominations to include teams of operators, allowing both “A” and “B” cam operators the chance to be recognized. Actor, producer and director Danny DeVito was honored with the Governors Award, with Motion Impossible/AGITO Remote Dolly Systems and Cinema Devices/Ergorig System accepting awards for Technical Achievement.
