History was made when Christian Berger, AAC, Alar Kivilo, ASC, CSC and Eagle Egilsson claimed top honors in the three competitive categories during the 24th Annual American Society of Cinematographers Outstanding Achievement Awards celebration in Los Angeles last Saturday. It was the first time that none of the winners in the feature film, television and episodic television competitions were born and raised in the United States.

Berger won the feature film competition for The White Ribbon. Egilsson claimed the episodic television award for a chapter in the Dark Blue series. Kivilo won the prize in the television movie arena for Taking Chance.

Berger was born and raised in Innsbruck, Austria. The AAC after his name indicates he is a member of the Austrian Association of Cinematographers. Berger has earned 22 narrative film credits in his native land. The White Ribbon is an Austrian language film released with sub-titles in the U.S. and other English language countries.

Kivilo was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. His family moved to Toronto while he was a teenager. Kivilo began his career in Canada and moved to Los Angeles in 1998. He has earned 32 narrative film credits for television and cinema movies. The letters after his name indicates that he is a member of both the Canadian Society of Cinematographers and the American Society of Cinematographers.

Egilsson was born in Regkjavik, Iceland and raised in his native land. He has earned a diverse array of credits as an actor, director, producer and cinematographer on some 20 U.S. movies and television series since the mid-1990s.

Stay tuned for our next column: For the first time in the history of the Academy Awards, the five Oscar cinematography nominees were born in different countries.
