"Birdman": 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

1 hour ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca, Sneak Peek 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in "Birdman", starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone:

Michael Stevens For 'The Good':

"'Birdman' aka 'The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance' hurtles along as if in flight, with a single cinematic take, soaring over, under and around the inner demons haunting 'Riggan Thomson' (Michael Keaton) , a grizzled film actor turned stage director, eager to rebuild his reputation in the theater world ...

"...after famously portraying the iconic movie superhero 'Birdman'.

"The funny, clever script shows how vain, fragile and bird-brained actors can be, as they go through the hollow motions of life, when their true calling is in performance...

"...with a convincing ensemble cast, bopping along to a jittery jazz drum score by Antonio Sanchez...

"'Birdman' is a unique satirical feature, that kept me on the edge, »

Jordan's Top Ten Movies of 2014

9 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

26 January 2015 8:21 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Check out the 21st Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards list of winners: below - 'Birdman', Eddie Redmaye and 'Orange is the New Black' were among the winners at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards last night (Jan. 25, 2015) The dark comedy had led the nominations for the annual ceremony with nods in four categories but picked up just one, the most coveted accolade of the night, Outstanding Motion Picture Cast. Accepting the award, Naomi Watts tripped over co-star Emma Stone's dress but was saved from falling by Edward Norton and regained her composure to give her thanks for such a ''wonderful, collaborative'' experience. And Michael Keaton said: ''Thank you, this is very, very exciting. It's the ultimate team sport, what we do for a living. To look at all the great actors out there... ''These guys are tremendous. I'm proud to be a part of this group. »

Emma Stone's face after she tripped Naomi Watts at the SAG awards is priceless

26 January 2015 7:52 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You ever have that dream where you’re standing in front of a crowd and something terrible happens? Either it turns out you’re not wearing clothes, or your teeth start falling out, or you trip you co-star in front of everyone? Yeah, that last one happened to Emma Stone at the 2015 SAG Awards last night. “Birdman” took the top honor of the year for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, which meant the ensemble got to troop up on stage to accept the award. But when it came time for Naomi Watts to take a turn at the microphone, this happened: You can almost see the moment Stone realizes this is about to become a meme. "Great, now I'm the chick who tripped Jet Girl," is probably not what she's thinking. Luckily, Naomi has the reflexes of a cat and caught herself with the help of »

SAG Awards win sends Birdman Oscar hopes soaring

26 January 2015 7:39 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Oscar hopes for Birdman got an enormous updraft over the weekend with big wins from the acting and producing guilds, possibly sending the comedy soaring over the perceived Academy Awards front-runner Boyhood.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's elegantly crafted backstage romp won best ensemble Sunday night at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild, a day after it also won the top honor at the Producer Guild Awards. Both guilds are seen as highly predictive of which film will triumph at the Oscars, which will be held Feb. 22.

Richard Linklater's Boyhood, the acclaimed indie made with the unprecedented real-life time-elapse of 12 years, has long held as the awards seasons favorite. But Birdman fills the role of a classic Oscar winner, likeShakespeare in Love, as a celebration of showbiz. Its fortunes look especially bright considering the last seven Producers Guild Awards winners have also won best picture at the Academy Awards.

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

Oh, "Boyhood." Look out. It's been an exceptional week for "Birdman." The Best Picture race for this year's Oscars seemed close to over as "Boyhood" amassed near unanimously flawless reviews and top honors at the Critic's Choice Awards. But "Birdman" has mounted an incredible, Keaton-esque comeback with a win at the PGA Awards and now, an Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture trophy from the SAG Awards.  Watch as the cast (Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Andrea Riseborough) open up about what SAG voters saw in the film.  »

Michael Keaton remembers Harold Ramis, tackling Shakespeare, Ron Howard's 'Gung Ho'

25 January 2015 7:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton is having the time of his life. Cruising along an awards circuit that has brought him plenty of kudos for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and probably more opportunities to talk about himself than he'd prefer, he seems consistently high on life and not at all phased by the grind. He's not someone who has really sought out this kind of attention and acclaim, often retreating to his ranch in Montana away from the Hollywood fray, but now that he's feeling the love? Let's just say I doubt anyone's having as much fun with all of this than he is. On the eve of this year's Oscar nominations announcement, I met Keaton for coffee and a light lunch at one of his favorite Santa Monica spots to chew on as much of his career and the awards »

2015 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: 'Birdman' Wins Best Ensemble, but is It the Oscar Frontrunnerc

25 January 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
