The Mexican director also won an award from the New York Film Critics Online for his directorial work. Boston Critics gave a mention to Lubezki for his Cinematrographic work on the space movie too. It's going to be a great season for everyone involved in the production of "Gravity" as it has been critically acclaimed. Washington D.C. Critics also raved giving the film awards in the Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Editing categories.

The National Board of Review honored "Gravity" last week with the Creative Innovation In Filmmaking Award. The film directed by Alfonso Cuarón also placed in the Top 10 of films released in 2013. That list included critical darlings like "12 Years A Slave," "Fruitvale Station" and "Saving Mr. Banks." Spike Jonze and his film "Her" took the awards for Best Director and Best Film, respectively. The nonprofit organization celebrates the unique voices of artists and honor the excellence in film. The Board’s core activities include fostering commentary on all aspects of film production, as well as underwriting educational film programs and seminars for film students. A gala is set to take place January 7 where all the winners will be honored in an event hosted by Lara Spencer.

"Gravity," being one of the most critically acclaimed box office hits of the season has already received an award at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards. Sandra Bullock, the star of the film, took home the Hollywood Actress Award. "Thank to the Hollywood Film Award. I think Hollywood has had a bad rap because the Hollywood I know is thousands and thousands of people that work tireless hours to achieve one goal, which is storytelling," Bullock said during her acceptance speech. "I see so many people in this room that I've worked with who have put me in this place today. The Hollywood I know supported an artist like Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón to write a story that they couldn't explain, couldn't show and made no sense to anyone." Other movies that were honored were "Dallas Buyers Club" with awards to Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, an award to Julia Roberts for "August: Osage County" and a special award for a career in Hollywood for Harrison Ford.
