The Revenant’s Emmanuel ‘Chivo’ Lubezki has made Oscar history tonight (as we suspected he might), becoming the first Cinematographer to win the Oscar in three consecutive years, and just the seventh person in history to win three Oscars in three consecutive years. Winning for Gravity in 2014 and Birdman in 2015, Lubezki is quickly becoming an awards magnet, and deservedly so. His next project is Weightless, directed by Terrence Malick and starring an ensemble cast including Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Benicio del Toro and Michael Fassbender. Don’t be surprised in he’s up for a fourth consecutive Oscar next year.
Lubezki is an extremely talented photographer as well as a cinematographer, so to celebrate his win we wanted to share some of the stunning images he’s shared on his Instagram account over the years. Well done, Chivo!
