Alfonso Cuarón won two Golden Globes for Best Foreign-Language Film and Best Director during the awards' 76th edition.

“I want to thank the Foreign Press Association and Yalitza Aparicio and Marina De Tavira, I'm amazed by everything they did,” Cuarón said.

“These experiences and these new shapes and these new faces, we begin to realize that while they may seem strange, they are not unfamiliar. This film would not have been possible without the specific colors that made me who I am. Gracias, familia. Gracias, Mexico,” he said.

The Mexican was nominated in three categories; nevertheless, he didn't win the award for Best Screenplay.

Cuarón was the first Mexican to win the Golden Globe for Best Director in 2014. He was followed by two other Mexican directors, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Guillermo del Toro.

“Most of what I was doing was just to witness and enjoy the amazing Marina de Tavira and Yalitza Aparicio exist on the screen, I am eternally grateful for the two of them. Also, another part of me is telling me that in reality, this film was directed by Libo, by my mother and my family, and maybe even more importantly, by this place, this very complex land, that shaped and created me," Cuarón said.
