White Ribbon wins ASC; Hurt Locker wins CAS

In a kind of surprise upset, "The White Ribbon" won the American Society of Cinematographers guild. It's my favorite of the films nominated for cinematography, but the odds of a repeat are slim-to-none, because the whole Academy has to vote on this award, and the film only has one other nod - Foreign Language (which it doesn't have wrapped up). Still, great moment in an otherwise banal last three weeks of guilds.

And The Hurt Locker stepped past Avatar to win the Cinema Audio Society award for Sound Mixing. Again, I'd be hesitant about predicting a repeat at the Oscars; Avatar will probably win at least one of the sound awards.
