The Mexican cinematographer on The Revenant confirmed his status as frontrunner for a third Oscar in a row with Sunday’s American Society Of Cinematographers win in Los Angeles.
Lubezki beat fellow nominees Roger Deakins for Sicario, Janusz Kaminski for Bridge Of Spies, Ed Lachman for Carol, and John Seale for Mad Max: Fury Road.
It was Lubezki’s third ASC win in a row after triumphs for Gravity and Birdman. He won in 2012 for The Tree Of Life and in 2007 for Children Of Men.
John Toll received the lifetime achievement award.
