In a statement, event organisers say, "Inarritu produced, wrote and directed four consecutive masterpieces and with them clearly illustrated how to reach and deeply move a wide audience."

His other movies include Babel, Amores perros, and the critically-acclaimed Biutiful, which earned two Oscar nominations - Best Actor for Javier Bardem and Best Foreign Language Film - at this year's (11) ceremony.
