The 'Elvis' DP collected the top prize Sunday at the 37th ASC Awards.
Elvis cinematographer Mandy Walker cracked a glass ceiling on Sunday, becoming the first woman to win the American Society of Cinematographers Award in the feature competition during the 37th ASC Awards.
The crowd at the Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom erupted with applause and gave Walker a lengthy standing ovation as her name was called.
“This is for all the women that win this award after me,” she said to enthusiastic applause, and she looked forward to more women breaking more glass ceilings. “This is an inclusive, representative community,” she said, adding, “I didn’t cry, I thought I was going to cry.”
