LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - One evening, two prizes for "Slumdog Millionaire."

The Oscar frontrunner took top honors at separate awards dinners on Sunday hosted by the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) and the American Cinema Editors (ACE).

The ASC award went to Anthony Dod Mantle, who a week earlier won the BAFTA Award for cinematography. Chris Dickens won the ACE editing award.

Both will vie for Oscars next Sunday, two of nine categories in which the film is competing. The gritty underdog drama has already won top awards from the producers, directors, writers and actors guilds, and dominated the Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards.
