This isn’t golf related, but when something this exciting happens in your family, you cannot help but scream it out for all to hear.
This was a huge weekend for my brother, Oscar-nominated cinematographer for 12 Years a Slave, Sean Bobbitt.
On Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards, 12 Years A Slave took home a boatload of awards including Best Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay. Sean took home the best cinematography award for his work on the film! Here is a full list of award winners.
Sunday, at the Oscars, Sean was once again nominated for best cinematography. Unfortunately, he didn’t get that award, but just being part of the Best Picture team is reward enough. He got shout-outs from Lupita Nyong’o in her acceptance speech and from director Steve McQueen during his speech during the Best Picture acceptance.
This is life changing for my brother, and my family and I couldn’t be more proud of this major accomplishment.
We love you Sean, and we cannot wait to see what you are going to do next!
