Chivo Wins Fourth ASC Award for 'Birdman'

The American Society of Cinematographers is a guild that knows the score. They've honoured Roger Deakins three times for some of his richest, most indelible work, and they've awarded Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki four times for Children of Men, The Tree of Life, Gravity, and now Birdman.

The Academy hasn't been nearly as on the ball regarding these two modern geniuses, but they're gradually getting there, having finally sprung for Lubezki last year and likely to give him his second consecutive Oscar this year.

Somebody get Deakins a vfx-heavy, single-take project, stat! Otherwise I fear that his woeful Oscar situation may never be rectified.
