The American Society of Cinematographers’ top award is fast becoming the annual Emmanuel Lubezki award, as The Revenant cinematographer took home his third ASC Award in a row and fifth overall.
Lubezki took home the award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography in a theatrical release for his work on Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant. Lubezki won last year for another Iñárritu collaboration, Birdman, and also took home the prize for 2013’s Gravity. (He won the Oscar for Best Cinematography for those two films as well.) He previously won the ASC Award for his work on The Tree of Life and Children of Men.
The Spotlight Award was given to both Adam Arkapaw for Macbeth and Mátyás Erdély for Son of Saul in a tie. On the television side, Vanja Černjul won for TV Series thanks to his work on the Marco Polo episode “The Fourth Step,” while Pierre Gill’s cinematography work on the Casanova pilot took home the Television Movie, Miniseries, or Pilot award.
Lubezki, who is also Oscar nominated for his work on The Revenant, continues the film’s recent trend of wins, including a Directors Guild of America Award for Iñárritu, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Leonardo DiCaprio, and three major prizes at the BAFTAs. The Revenant leads all films with 12 Oscar nominations.
