Birdman, a dark satire of show business and fame directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, has won the Academy Award for best picture and best director.
It joined The Grand Budapest Hotel and Whiplash as the big winners of the night, with Birdman also taking out the Oscars for cinematography and original screenplay.
The film about a washed-up former superhero actor, played by Michael Keaton, and his struggle to make a comeback stood out among eight nominees to receive the film industry’s highest honour.
Inarritu won the best director Oscar, beating Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) and Richard Linklater (Boyhood).
The second Mexican in a row to take the best director Oscar after Alfonso Cuarón won last year for Gravity, Iñarritu dedicated his award to his fellow countrymen.
Talking about Mexican immigrants in the United States, he said: “I just pray that they can be treated with the same dignity and respect as the ones who came before and built this incredible immigrant nation.”
