Cinematographer Allen Daviau -- a five-time Oscar nominee for films including "E.T. the Extra Terrestrial," "The Color Purple," "Empire of the Sun" and "Bugsy" -- died from COVID-19 complications on April 15 at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 77. "E.T." filmmaker Steven Spielberg said of his "E.T." colleague, "His warmth and humanity were as powerful as his lens. He was a singular talent and a beautiful human being.'
