The director is no stranger to the Oscars, of course, but this time around his speech added a little fire about #OscarsSoWhite — and a special message for Leonardo DiCaprio!
The director edged out quite the group of competitors: Adam McKay (The Big Short), George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road), Lenny Abrahamson (Room), and Tom McCarthy (Spotlight).
Ch-ch-check it out (above) as Iñárritu totally ignored the play-off music to deliver a very important point about diversity in film!!
What'd U think about how Best Director went down?! Should Iñárritu have won??
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!
