2016 ASC Awards Winners: Emmanuel Lubezki Triumphs Third Year In A Row

This year’s ASC Awards saw the winner of the 2015 and 2o14 Theatrical Release Award, Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC, win once again for his work on The Revenant.

Perhaps it comes as no surprise that Lubezki won once again, given the level of craftsmanship involved in his previous two winning films, Gravity and Birdman. Plus, reteaming with Birdman director Alejandro G. Inarritu seems to be a winning combination for them both, as The Revenant has seen no shortage of critical praise and accolades this awards season.
