Was it at one time necessary to be a member of the cinematographers' union to be eligible for this award?[edit]

In Wikipedia's article on the 1971 film McCabe & Mrs. Miller I came across this sentence: "While the film's cinematography is generally praised, Zsigmond was not a member of the cinematographers' union and so not eligible for an Oscar nomination for his work on the film." However, the current Academy rule on the Cinematography award is clear that you do not have to be a member of any specific union or guild in order to be eligible. So is Wikipedia incorrect in the McCabe & Mrs. Miller article? Or was there formerly such a rule? If there was, it should be noted in this article with a source as to when the rule was eliminated. --Mathew5000 08:36, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

His or her[edit]

I changed "awarded each year to a cinematographer for his work in one particular motion picture" because, while no woman has never won the award, it is not restricted only to male cinematographers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.115.1.85 (talk) 01:40, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Has a woman ever been nominated for this award -ErinHowarth (talk) 21:13, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Who has the 2nd most amount of losses that is alive?[edit]

I was just wondering this. Had Deakens won the other night who would of it changed to?

John Alcott 8 nominations?[edit]

I can only see one win and no nominations, although the table ate the end of the article asserts that he's been nominated 8 times and won twice. --Modi mode (talk) 11:41, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
