The journey of ‘Birdman’ started three years ago when I asked Nico, Alexander and Armando to follow me in a crazy idea, and because they are crazy we did it and we wrote ‘Birdman’ together, and for that I am all my life grateful and thankful for that and to share this experience with them.
Iñárritu wins the Oscar for best director for Birdman. Iñárritu reveals his good luck charm during his acceptance speech.
Tonight, I am wearing the real Michael Keaton tighty-whities. They are tight, smell like balls, but it worked. I’m here. Thank you, Michael.” LOL!
Birdman wins the Oscar for best picture. Inarritu dedicates the award to his fellow Mexicans.
I pray that we can find and build a government that we deserve, and the ones that live in this country, who are a part of the latest generation of immigrants in this country, 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.
