Rachel Morrison '90 Wins Historic Oscar Nomination

Rachel Morrison '90 has become the first woman in Oscar history to be nominated for Best Cinematography for her work on Mudbound. Rachel was the director of photography for Fruitvale Station in 2013, and will follow Mudbound with the highly anticipated Black Panther in February–her second collaboration with director Ryan Coogler. 

"My love of art and desire to tell human stories began at the Atrium so many years ago," she recently said.

Mudbound was screened at Atrium's 35th Anniversary Film Festival earlier this month, and has already been nominated for two Golden Globes. In addition to Rachel's nomination for Best Cinematography, Mudbound also received Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Song.

Congratulations to Rachel for her outstanding work!
