“Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” won Best Picture at the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday night, besting “American Sniper,” “Boyhood,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game,” “Selma,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Whiplash” for the award.
“Birdman” won three other Oscars: Best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Best Cinematography for Emmanuel Lubezki (his second Oscar win in a row after last year’s “Gravity”) and Best Original Screenplay. Again, congratulations to everyone involved with he film.
But in my opinion the 87th annual Academy Awards turned out to be a mostly boring night. Neil Patrick Harris opened with a big musical number, but it wasn’t anything we haven’t seen from him before. And maybe it was me, but he always seemed nervous when he was in the audience talking to them.
Oh well, maybe next year I’ll ge my wish and Emma Stone will host. Anywho, the awards went as most expected. Here is a look at the big winners:
