    With the release of the trailer for The Revenant today, many are applauding the cinematography, by Emmanuel Lubezki (Chivo), and some are saying that he may win a THIRD successive Oscar.

    His previous wins come for Gravity (2013) and Birdman (2014).
     
    If he does win a third in a row, what company does he join across all Oscar winners, regardless of category?

    Which victors have successive wins that Chivo could be rivalling soon?
     
    And who came close, and should have won successively, but missed out?

    Sound Mixer Mark Berger has gone 4/4 at the Oscars, winning for Apocalypse Now (1979), The Right Stuff (1983), Amadeus (1984) and The English Patient (1996)….

    Also, Production Designer Dante Ferretti and his set decorator Francesca Lo Schiavo, after a long Oscar-losing streak, have been on a roll lately, winning their last 3 times at bat, for The Aviator (2004), Sweeney Todd (2007) and Hugo (2011)

    Back in the ’90s, makeup wizard Rick Baker won 3/3 without a loss in between..he won for Ed Wood (1994), The Nutty Professor (1996) and Men in Black (1997)

    With two wins, Lubezki is still somewhat underrewarded, but the Deakins contingent finally seems to be gaining steam (noms for ‘Prisoners’ and ‘Unbroken’, which would not have happened with a different DP), so I have a hard time believing that the former will get a third before the latter gets one.

    Edith Head won B/W Costume Design in 1949, 1950 and 1951 and then again in 1953 and ’54.

    During that time frame she also won Color Costume Design in 1950.

    Walt Disney had a seven year winning streak for Best Short Subject – Cartoon, beginning in 1934.

    Still, if one of them gets it this year it’s more likely Lubezki for Revenant than Deakins for Sicario, right?

    We need a cinematography thread. What are the other contenders this year/who can stop Lubezki? Fukunaga for Beasts of No Nation? Arkapaw for Macbeth? Richardson for Hateful Eight? A foreign language contender? Doesn’t look like a lot of competition, honestly.

    “who can stop Lubezki”

    Your wording here is worrisome. Just a few years ago, we were complaining about how he had never won, and now we’re trying to plot their demise. Not cool, man. Not cool.

    Hmm?

    I love him. He’s one of the greatest cinematographers of all time. I jumped up and down when he won for Gravity. Still, three years in a row seems a bit much for anyone. If The Revenant is the best I’ll root for that, but I’m just looking at what might also stand a chance. It just seems like it’s Chivo’s to lose so that’s why I worded it that way.

    Frank Capra won his three oscars for Best Director the first three times he was nominated and he did it in a span period of just five years: 1934’s It Happened One Night, 1936’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town and 1938’s You Can’t Take With You.

    Walter Brennan achieve the same goal when he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscars the first three times he was nominated: 1936’s Come and Get It, 1938’s Kentucky and 1940’s The Westerner.
