This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the 2015 Golden Globe nominations. Michael Keaton and Emma Stone each received noms for Birdman, but who else made the cut? Read more…
Emma Stone, Edward Norton, and Zach Galifianakis star in the much buzzed about dark comedy Birdman, which also marks the return of its star Michael Keaton to the big screen. While the film deals with an aging star’s struggle with his career, ego, and personal life as he tries to mount a Broadway show, one of the most memorable scenes in the movie has Keaton running around Times Square with only his tighty whities to support him.
Birdman (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a black comedy which chronicles the story of Riggan Thomas (Michael Keaton), a washed up, former action star who attempts to cling to his relevance by making a comeback on Broadway. While many assume the story reflects Keaton’s real life as the man who once defended Gotham in the black Batman suit (in 1988 and 1992), you’d be surprised to know how the actor really feels about trading in one suit for another.
