oscars_23_Emmanuel Lubezki

Emmanuel Lubezki is the Susan Lucci of cinematographers. The Mexican filmmaker, known for his groundbreaking techniques and characteristic style, is a five time Academy Award nominee. But Lubezki, who frequently collaborates with fellow Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón, has yet to take home an Oscar. Lubezki received his first nomination for 1995’s A Little Princess; and he earned his most recent nod for 2011’s The Tree of Life. He could earn another nod for his work on Cuarón’s latest project Gravity, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as surviving astronauts in a damaged space station.
