Lubezki Claims Best Cinematographer Award from New York Film Critics Online

It could turn out to be another memorable awards season for Emmanuel Lubezki

The Mexican cinematographer—who picked up several awards, including his first-ever Oscar, last awards season for his work on Gravity—has claimed the Best Cinematographer prize from the New York Film Critics Online.

Emmanuel Lubezki

Lubezki won the award for his impressive work on Alejandro González Iñárritu’s critically acclaimed dark comedy Birdman.

It’s the third award Lubezki has picked up in nearly as many days…

Earlier, he claimed the same prize from the Boston Society of Film Critics and the Los Angeles Critics Association.

With all the hardware he’s starting to collect, it appears Lubezki is a shoo-in for a 2015 Academy Award nomination.

Meanwhile, González Iñárritu picked up another Best Screenplay award for co-penning Birdman with with Nicolás Giacobone,Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo. Earlier in the weekend, he picked up the same award from the Boston Society of Film Critics.
