Other contenders for the prize include Alfonso Cuarón for Roma, Matthew Labatique for A Star is Born, Linus Sandgren for First Man and Robbie Ryan for The Favourite.
The American Society of Cinematographers Award is one of the most prestigious prizes of its kind in the world. Renowned artists honoured with the distinction include Roger Deakins, Emmanuel Lubezki and Wally Pfister.
So far, no Pole has ever won the award although several have been nominated: Janusz Kamiński, Paweł Edelman and Dariusz Wolski.
In 2014, Żal received the ASC Spotlight Award for Pawlikowski’s Ida.
Cold War follows the love story of two musicians, whose tempestuous relationship unfolds against the backdrop of the Cold War in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
It is one of nine movies in the running for an Oscar for best foreign-language film.
