“Birdman” won the 87th Academy Award for best picture, leaving behind films like "American Sniper," "Boyhood," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Selma," "The Theory of Everything" and "Whiplash.” "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" also won the best director award for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, best original screenplay and best cinematography.
"Maybe next year the government will inflict immigration restrictions," Inarritu joked, referring to last year's best director award winner, Alfonso Cuaron, who is also a Mexican. "Two Mexicans in a row. That's suspicious, I guess."
