Emmanuel Lubezki made history after winning his third consecutive Oscar as a film cinematographer for his work in The Revenant. 

Emmanuel Lubezk Wins Best Cinematography Oscar

This win has paved a remarkable path for Mexican filmmakers. It is his second Oscar win with Mexican director Alejandro G. Inarritu. They received an Oscar for their work on Birdman at last year’s Oscars.

Lubezki has been nominated eight times and won his first Oscar for his work in Gravity in 2014.

“He loves to live on the edge,” Inarritu said the cinematographer, who goes by the nickname Chivo. “If failure is not a possibility, he doesn’t seem interested.”

Lubezki became emotional as he thanked the director and his family during his acceptance speech.
