Legendary cinematographer Gordon Willis (a.k.a., “the Prince of Darkness”) is being handed a Lifetime Achievement Award sometime this evening by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — after decades of not honoring the guy. As Movieline‘s Stu Van Airsdale wrote yesterday, “Very few would argue against Willis being the best American cinematographer to never win an Oscar.” Stu’s piece includes six famous Willis clips, including my favorite — the killing of Fanucci in The Godfather, Part II.
