Director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki won the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Outstanding Achievement Award in the category of Feature Film for his work on Birdman. In five of the last ten years, the ASC Award winner also won the Oscar. Lubezki also won the Oscar last year for his work on Alfonso Cuarón's film Gravity. Should he win the Oscar this year, "Chivo" (as he is affectionately known) would be only the second cinematographer to win two consecutive Oscars (John Toll accomplished the feat for Legends of the Fall and Braveheart, respectively.)
