He was also the recipient of the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.
Lubezki won the ASC Award last year for Gravity. He also took home top honors for The Tree of Life (2012) and Children of Men (2007), and was nominated in 2000 for Sleepy Hollow.

My congratulations to all of them but especially to Oscar who is a gentleman and a super lovely cameraman!

He is also the very first Spanish cinematographer getting nominated for the ASC Awards.

 

Congratulations Oscar! :)
