Black comedy-drama Birdman has scooped the big prize of the night at this year’s Oscars. The film won Best Picture as well as Best Director for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
After being nominated for nine Academy Awards, Birdman went home with four golden statuettes on Sunday night, among which were prizes for Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography.
