Not only did Alfonso Cuarón win his 2nd Oscar for Best Director, he made history by also winning Best Cinematography, the only person to ever win the award for a movie he also directed.

Usually, director and cinematographer are two different people.  On Roma, Alfonso Cuarón was both, and his work was recognized twice over at the 2019 Academy Awards, with Oscars for both Best Director and Best Cinematography.  He is the only filmmaker ever to have personally won both for the same film.

 

 

This is Alfonso Cuarón’s 2nd Oscar for Best Director: his first was for Gravity in 2013.

Since then, 5 out of the last 6 winners have been Mexican.

 

 

Cuarón’s friend and last year’s Best Director winner, fellow Mexican Guillermo Del Toro announced the award: “Here’s a name I can pronounce.” as he presented the Oscar!

 

 

Cuarón thanked Mexico, his family, and the Academy for recognizing a film “centered around an indigenous woman.”

¡Felicidades!
