Nominees for 1st Annual AFI Awards

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Here is a list of the nominees for the first annual AFI Awards, which were announced Thursday in Los Angeles by the American Film Institute:

Janusz Zygmund Kamiński, A.S.C. (born June 27, 1959) is a two-time Academy Award-winning Polish cinematographer and film director; he has photographed all of Steven Spielberg's movies since 1993's Schindler's List.

Kamiński was born in Ziębice, Poland, the son of Jadwiga Celner and Marian Kaminski. He emigrated at the age of 21—after Prime Minister Jaruzelski imposed martial law in 1981—to the United States. There he attended Columbia College in Chicago from 1982 to 1987, taking up film making as a profession before transferring to the AFI Conservatory, where he graduated with an M.F.A. degree. At AFI he met future Academy Award Nominee Wally Pfister known for his Cinematography work with Christopher Nolan on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, whom he recruited as a grip and electrician for various projects.

Kamiński twice won the Academy Award for Best Cinematography in the 1990s, for Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan.
