He has received his 10th Academy Award nomination for best cinematography on the James Bond film Skyfall.
Mr Deakins (pictured), who is an old boy of Torquay Boys' Grammar School and has a home in Kingswear, was also nominated for a BAFTA award for Skyfall. That award went to Claudio Miranda for Life of Pi.

He has a little way to go before he equals director Federico Fellini's record of 12 nominations without winning.
The 85th Academy Awards presentations take place on Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Mr Deakins, whose career has seen him win 65 major film awards including BAFTAs and British Film Awards, is up against Claudio Miranda again at the Oscars.
Other cinematography nominees are Seamus McGarvey (Anna Karenina); Robert Richardson (Django Unchained) and Janusz Kaminski (Lincoln).
