Mexico reacts to “Birdman” Oscar nominations

Hollywood Reporter – Mexican talent shined last year at the Oscars and just might repeat that success at the 87th Academy Awards on Feb. 22. The space thriller Gravity won seven Academy Awards last year, including best director for Alfonso Cuaron and cinematography for Emmanuel Lubezki.

Now, fellow Mexican Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is making a run for the Oscar with his dramedy Birdman, nominated for best picture, director, original screenplay and cinematography. Birdman is up for a total of nine Academy Awards, and should Lubezki win best cinematography this time around, it would mark his second straight win in the category.
