Lubezki Wins Top ASC Award

Mexican cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (pictured) won the top prize at the 28th annual edition of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Awards for his work on the film Gravity directed by fellow countryman Alfonso Cuarón.

This is the first time a 3D production wins the top ASC prize in the feature film category, and the third time Lubezki receives this prize, he had received it in 2006 for Cuarón's Chidren of Men and in 2011 for Terence Malick's The Tree of Life. He had also received a nomination in 2000 for Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow.

Lubezki is also nominated to this year's Academy Awards, it is his sixth nomination, but no win yet. The winners of the 28th ASC Awards were announced last night at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in California.
