Mexico's Alejandro Inárritu won the best director Oscar for drama "The Revenant" about a fur-trapper who survives a bear attack and treks across a desolate landscape in winter.

Inárritu was the first filmmaker in 60 years to win a back-to-back director's Oscar. Inárritu won best director last year for "Birdman," which also won the 2015 best picture Academy Award.

It was the fourth Oscar for Inárritu and came as little surprise after he won a Golden Globe, a British BAFTA award anda trophy from the Directors Guild Awards for the film.
