oscars_Alex Rodriguez

He may not play professional baseball, but this Alex Rodríguez hits homeruns in Hollywood. The French-born Mexican film editor, who has edited several films directed by Alfonso Cuarón, earned an Academy Award nomination for Film Editing for his work with the Mexican director on 2006’s Children of Men. Critic Wesley Morris described their work as follows: "Children of Men has a blistering immediacy that's singular in this age of rapid cutting. Along with Alex Rodríguez, Cuarón cut the picture himself, and while he uses digital effects as enrichment, he builds scenes within the camera's frame rather than just in an editing room. So the film is as theatrical as it is cinematic."

Best Film Editing, Children of Men, 79th Academy Awards, Nominated
