    It's about an actor who played a superhero is now washed up. The film was released today. It's in limited release so far, mostly film festivals and art houses. The movie also stars Edward Norton. It would be great to see Keaton get an Oscar.

    Has Norton ever won an Oscar? He's a good actor.

    I read one column in a newspaper today that his performance is unbeatable for the Best Actor.

    This new movie looks good. I'd like to see Keaton finally win that Oscar after being so wrongfully denied for his work on Night Shift.

    Looks a bit too goofy to get an Oscar, pretty sure Steve Carell will get it for Foxcatcher, he's playing a creepy old gay guy who pays to watch guys wrestle each other.

    Saw a preview of 'Nightcrawler' a few days ago, Jake Gyllenhaal should definitely get a nomination, he plays a great sociopathic bug-eyed shithead in it. The movies excellent too, like a mix of American Psycho and Drive, definitely worth seeing when it comes out.

    The Oscar thing could be interesting. I don't doubt he gave a good performance, there will also be a lot of voters looking to give him a kind of 'Lifetime Achievement' nod like they have in the past with others.

    After watching the trailer, I really want to see this Birdman.
    Same with Foxcatcher. And Nightcrawler.
    Those 3 movies seem like must see's. And if Steve Carell, Jake Gyllanhall and Michael Keaton are all nominated, it should be a really exciting Oscar's this year. I really wouldn't know who to root for.

    You know, if he wants to have any chance of an Oscar he needs to do THSS. Hollywood takes the word of America's Judge very seriously.

    One of my favorite actors.
    Can't wait to see this -I understand the writer/director wrote this with Keaton in mind for the lead.
    You're right- lots of buzz on this from the big time film critics.
