If at first you don’t succeed... Brigitte Broch earned an Academy Award nomination in the Best Art Direction category for her work on Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet in 2006, a modernized adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. The Germany-born Mexican art director would leave empty-handed. But after partnering with Luhrmann on the hit musical Moulin Rouge! some five years later, Broch would finally experience Oscar glory at its finest. In recent years, she’s even work with noted Mexican filmmakers Alfonso Cuarón and Guillermo del Toro.
