‘Cameraperson’ Leads Cinema Eye Honors With Three Wins Including Top Award

Recognizing the best in documentary filmmaking, the 10th annual Cinema Eye Honors was held tonight at the Museum of the Moving Image, and in the end, the Kirsten Johnson-directed Cameraperson took home the night’s top honor, Outstanding Nonfiction Feature. The film, a cinematic memoir comprised of footage shot by Johnson over a decade, also won awards for Outstanding Editing and Outstanding Cinematography.

Coming in second with two awards was, unsurprisingly, likely Oscar-lock O.J.: Made In America, which won for Outstanding Direction for Ezra Edelman and Outstanding Production for Edelman and Caroline Waterlow.
