Often under-appreciated, it's finally time to give the Director of Photography some love!
That's why we're so happy Emmanuel Lubezki won for his beautiful work on Birdman!
The film — directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu — was praised for what seemed like EXTREMELY long shots that would travel through different set-ups and locations!
What a genius!
If you think you've seen Lubezki's work before… you have!
He also won last year for his work on Gravity!
Hope Emmanuel has enough room on his mantle for his second Oscar!

Can someone get Bill Murray a calendar or something, because we're pretty sure he doesn't know what year it is!!
The hilarious actor took the stage at the 2014 Oscars with Amy Adams to hand out the award for an achievement in Cinematography!
The only problem is, he made a teeny tiny mistake when he was getting ready to open the envelope! He said:
"The 2013 Oscar for the Best Cinematography in a major motion picture is gonna go home with…"
Hmmmm. Last time we checked we were in the year 2014!!
Perhaps we have a Groundhog Day situation over here and he's just stuck in the same day over and over again!
Ch-ch-check out his flub (above)!

Gravity wins again! We're floating on air! No, we're floating in Zero G!

head to head helmet to helmet against The Grandmaster's Philippe Le Sourd, Inside Llewyn Davis'
Bruno Delbonnel, Prisoners' Roger Deakins, and Phedon Papamichael from Nebraska, Emmanuel managed to blast away from his competition!

Gravity really brought down the house at the Critics’ Choice Awards!
The AH-Mazing astronautic thrill ride won more trophies than you could fit in an escape pod!
Besides Sandra Bullock F-Bomb fueled win for Best Actress in an Action Movie and Alfonso Cuaron's Best Directing, Gravity also took home Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Score, and Best Sci-Fi Movie!
Seven awards! Wow! Should have known a movie about the vacuum of space would suck up a lot of trophies! Congratz!
