It's been a long time coming but finally, on his 14th nomination, legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins has won his first Academy Award.
 
In a career spanning more than 40 years, he's worked on notable films such as The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo and Skyfall.
 
His victory came for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, a return to Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi world.
 
Accepting his Oscar, Deakins said: "I really love my job."
 
He graciously continued: "One of the reasons I really love it is because of the people I work with in front of and behind the camera."
 
He saw off competition from Dunkirk's Hoyte van Hoytema, Darkest Hour's Bruno Delbonnel, and Mudbound's Rachel Morrison, the first woman cinematographer to be nominated.
 
Deakins' first nomination was in 1994 for The Shawshank Redemption.
