Some Oscar® wrongs were at least partially (and in two cases, totally) righted at the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards. Selma, for example, at least got more nominations; The LEGO Movie won Best Animated Feature, and Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) won for Score (while being not being considered at all for that award by Oscar®).

Birdman wound up with seven awards – including two for Michael Keaton (Best Actor in a Comedy and Best Actor); Boyhood got four (Best Director, Best Young Actor, Supporting Actress and Best Picture), and The Grand Budapest Hotel got three (Best Comedy, Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design).

This year’s Louis XIII Genius Award went to Ron Howard; the Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Kevin Costner and the very first MVP Award (for the most prodigious body of work over the last year) went to Jessica Chastain.

Host Michael Stahan (Live with Kelly and Michael) struggled a bit with his opening monologue, but got stronger as the night went on. The complete list of winners follow the jump.

Michelle says Birdman Starts Strong but Stumbles Across The Finish Line

Birdman

In many ways Birdman is a case of a great film that cannot sustain it’s greatness for more than 60 minutes. It eventually fails to live up to the amazing cast and the quirky tone that it sets up. The question is can I overlook the awfulness of the last 30 minutes?

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance): A Fabulous Fiction Rooted In Truth!

birdman

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a brilliant bombastic, bizarre skewering of: superhero movies, egocentric actors, actors’ insecurities, Broadway, Broadway critics, and pretty much all things entertainment.

The story of Riggan Thomson’s (Michael Keaton) effort to be taken seriously as an actor/director/playwright after having starred in three superhero movies twenty years ago – Birdman is directed as a continuous shot (which is difficult because the film takes place over a considerably longer period that its two-hour running time).

A actor struggles to mount a play on Broadway. Normal, right? Broadway is never easy. But this actor was once a movie god, playing the iconic superhero, Birdman. Combined with his ego problems, troubled family life and fading career, that’s a lot to put on any guy’s plate.

Is he nuts? The new international trailer for Alejandro Iñárritu’s Birdman suggests that might be a possibility. Check it out after the jump.

First Teaser: Birdman!

In Birdman, Michael Keaton plays a man who was once famous for playing an iconic superhero. Nothing he’s done before or since has impacted that fame and he’s pretty much considered washed up – but now he’s trying to mount a Broadway play and must overcome his ego, family troubles and, of course, the fact that everyone thinks of him as Birdman, to make it work.

Birdman is the next film from Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Biutiful). Check out the first teaser after the jump.
