Michael Keaton as “Riggan” and Edward Norton as “Mark” in BIRDMAN.

Another award show, another opening musical. What happened to just going up on stage and talking? But let’s move on before I start writing some pointless rant no one cares about.

You all came here to see the list of winners. In fact, you are probably not even reading this right now. You most likely skipped right over this and scrolled down to see the winners. I understand. But if you did just scroll right down, you’re probably wondering why I didn’t list the nominees alphabetically. Well, that’s because I put my favorite in each category at the top.

As you can see, I didn’t agree with every win tonight. Check out the list down below…
