Alfonso Cuaron Is First Latino To Win Oscar For Best Director

Alfonso Cuaron made history last night as the first Latino to win the ‘Best Director’ award at the Oscars.

The 52-year-old Mexican director was awarded his first Oscar for his film Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

The 3-D film follows an Astronaut, played by Sandra Bullock, who is fighting to survive after being cut loose from her space shuttle. Cuaron spent three years developing the special effects that gave the film its distinctive look and we are sure that he is happy to have all it all pay off.

Shortly after leaving the stage, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto sent out a tweet congratulating his fellow countryman. “Extraordinary work. Congratulations!,” the tweet stated.
