Birdman is king of the hill when it comes to garnering the prestigious Golden Globe nominations. The classy drama has flown the coop with a whopping 7 nominations.
Other prime contenders in the race won notable nods at five apiece, these being Boyhood and The Imitation Game. Birdman has been hailed as a major success, particularly for the career rejuvenation it has afforded to long time leading man Michael Keaton (Beetlejuice, Batman), whose career had been somewhat in the dumps for nearly a decade prior to the runaway success of his latest starring vehicle.
Alejandro G. Iñárritu won a nod for Best Director for his work on the hugely successful film, while other major beneficiaries of a Golden Globe nod included Antonio Sanchez for Best Original Score and Edward Norton for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture.
Meanwhile, Birdman was also nominated for Golden Globes in such prestigious categories as Best Motion Picture and even Best Screenplay (for which director Iñárritu won a second nomination).
The Golden Globes awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 11, 2015. It is sure to be a memorable night of speeches and celebrity sightings. Birdman, with its amazing 7 nominations, is sure to be the standout hit of the evening.
