Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has a new record under his belt: He’s the first Mexican to win the Oscar for Best Director two consecutive years in a row. He won this year for “The Revenant,” and won for “Birdman.”

Inarritu joins two other directors in this distinction: John Ford (1940 and 1941) and Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1949 and 1950).

Congrats to Inarritu, and I can’t wait to see what else he does.
