Antonio Sanchez is a critics’ choice…
The 43-year-old Mexican jazz drummer has won his first-ever Critics‘ Choice Movie Award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
Sanchez collected the trophy for Best Score during the 20th annual awards show, which was held at the Hollywood Palladium, for his acclaimed work on Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman.
González Iñárritu, meantime, took home the prize for Best Original Screenplay for co-penning his dark comedy with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr. and Armando Bo.
Emmanuel Lubezki picked up his second consecutive Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Cinematography. The Mexican cinematographer, who won the award last year for his work on Gravity, picked up the award this time around for his acclaimed work on Birdman.
