During last Sunday’s 87th annual Academy Awards telecast, Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Broadway-set dramatic comedy Birdman starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis proved to be the night’s big winner. The film was an obvious favorite of the Academy, nominated in nine categories and taking home Oscars in four of them for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and for Emmanuel Lubezki’s memorable cinematography (his second in row, winning last year for Gravity as well).

“All the people that were behind this film was really heroes because the idea was really crazy,” said an obviously emotional Iñárritu. “A script that started with a middle-aged man, interior dressing room, cross-legged, floating, can go anywhere, and we are here. I don’t know how that happened but it happened. And, anyway, I just really want to thank everybody.”

(OSCARS 2015) FULL Winners List!

"Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" won Best Picture at the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, besting "American Sniper," "Boyhood," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Selma," "The Theory of Everything" and "Whiplash" for the honor.

"Birdman" won three other Oscars: Best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Best Cinematography for Emmanuel Lubezki (his second Oscars win in a row after last year's "Gravity") and Best Original Screenplay.

It wasn't a total rout for "Birdman": star Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne for "The Theory of Everything."

The other acting awards went to Julianne Moore (Best Actress for "Still Alice"), J.K. Simmons (Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash") and Patricia Arquette (Best Supporting Actress for "Boyhood").

"Birdman" and "The Grand Budapest Hotel" tied for the most nominations going into the night with nine, and each film won four awards. Anderson's drama took home Best Original Score for Alexandre Desplat, Best Production Design, Best Costume Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling.

"Whiplash" was another big winner, with three Oscars: Simmons' award, Best Editing and Best Sound Mixing.

Poland's "Ida" won Best Foreign Language Film, the first film from Poland to ever win the Oscar in the category. "Big Hero 6" won Best Animated Film. Laura Poitras' "Citizenfour" won Best Documentary.

Common and John Legend won Best Original Song for "Glory" from "Selma."

(MOVIE FREAK) Special OSCAR Preview!

The 87th annual Academy Awards will be handed out this Sunday evening, and if all goes as expected then director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Broadway comedy-drama hybrid Birdman will likely walk away with the majority of the awards. Based on recent victories with the Producers Guild (PGA), the Directors Guild (DGA) and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), it’s hard to imagine a scenario where it doesn’t emerge victorious, at least as far as Best Picture is concerned, the other seven nominees more or less along for the ride and little else.

Or are they? There are some interesting and intriguing wrinkles which could throw the evening into chaos. Richard Linklater’s 12-years-in-the-making Boyhood has won the majority of the awards up to this point, dominating with critics groups, taking home the BAFTA [British Academy of Film and Television Arts] and coming out on top as far the Golden Globes were concerned. Then there is Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper. With over $300-million in ticket sales it’s easily the box office titan as far as this awards season is concerned. While Hollywood likes to talk about how money isn’t the end all-be all that kind of cash can lead voters to take a second look at the picture, and if that’s the case the chances for it to pull an upset aren’t as extreme as some might think.

As for the remainder of the nominees, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, Whiplash and Selma, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where any of them could sneak their way to victory. But with the Academy’s preferential voting system, anything, I guess, is possible, and if Birdman and Boyhood split votes down the middle, and any one of those titles is listed third on a majority of ballots, then be prepared for a shock. If this scenario were to come comes to pass, what then? My money would be on quiet, lonely two-nomination Selma, because imagining a typical Academy member ballot where it was listed any lower than third is incredibly difficult to do.
