Birdman has received 9 nominations at the 87th Academy Awards, the most for the ceremony. Except Oscar, Birdman has won and nominated many famous awards like Golden Globe Awards and 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards. Though there are some people that said they cannot understand the film, Birdman has been named one of the best films in 2014 by many critics and authorities.
Riggan Thomson, the main actor acted by Michael Keaton, was once a Hollywood actor famous for playing the superhero Birdman in blockbuster movies decades earlier. He wants to recover his career to the former glory by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver's short story "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love". But it won't come easy. Riggan is later troubled by inner doubt, harsh critics, his daughter and so on.

" Birdman (and also known as " The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance") is a complex and involved look into personal value and the human need for acceptance in an ever changing world. Keaton's character is clearly haunted by ghosts of his past and almost delusional with them, and try as he might we can see his current project is falling apart at the seams. "

" It's a quasi-religious fable about a man haunted by the past and facing a profound moral and existential crisis in the present, and it's a dazzling display of virtuoso cinematic technique and showboat performance."
