3 Big Latino Oscar Wins in Documentaries & Cinematography!

It's a big night for Latinos at the Oscars! Besides the great fashion, Latinos have racked up some golden statues that shouldn't be missed.

Chilean Claudio Miranda won for "Best Cinematography" for Life of Pi. The shaking (and adorably rambling!) Miranda took the stage, explaining: "This was quite a beast to make. Everyone was totally there and supportive... I can't even speak." Aw!

The documentary Inocente won for "Best Documentary Short," with the filmmakers and Inocente taking the stage to accept the award. With a call for supporting the arts, the (former) homeless teen is an inspiration to many. Congrats!

Finally, Searching for Sugarman won "Best Documentary Feature", which honors musician Sixto Diaz Rodriguez, the subject of the documentary. 

Congrats to all the winners thus far!
