Film Director

Iñárritu doesn’t just win Academy Awards. One of only three directors to score back-to-back Oscars in the best directing category (“Birdman” and “The Revenant”), he was bestowed a special achievement Oscar in 2018 for “Carne y Arena” (“Flesh and Sand”), a VR installation about migrants crossing the Mexican border into the U.S. But Oscar has had its eye on Iñárritu ever since his 2000 debut feature, “Amores Perros,” was nominated for best foreign language film and received more than 60 statues, becoming the most awarded film around the world that year. Follow-ups “21 Grams,” “Babel” and “Biutiful” all caught the eye of Academy voters, too, but his foray into VR served as a giant step in a career that has always embraced cinematic innovations.
