You may have thought Hugh Jackman's Wolverine days were over, but it turns out they're just future past.
OK, we don't know what that means either. The point is, you can't kill Wolverine.

Though this time it isn't regeneration we have to thank but rather a little Best Picture Oscar winner called Birdman!
In a new interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine (Wolverine's favorite!), Hugh described how watching Michael Keaton's former superhero gave him new inspiration:

This is a lesson to us all — inside jokes should never ever be shared with the world!
Chances are, not everyone is going to find the comment you made hilarious and Sean Penn certainly found that out the hard way.
The actor's green card joke when Alejandro González Iñárritu won for Best Director at the Oscars did not sit well everyone. Some even called the jab racist or insensitive!

However, the Birdman director didn't take it too seriously. In fact, Alejandro revealed he's used to it because he does the same to Sean!
Alejandro spoke out about that incident and said he "found it hilarious":

And of course they saved the best for last!
It was an extremely competitive year for cinema but one film has to come out on top!
And that film was…
The film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu was head-to-head with Boyhood, but ultimately the film starring Michael Keaton came out as the winner!
It's not entirely a surprise. The Academy is notorious for awarding films about the film industry!
Congratulations to the cast and crew for this HUGE accomplishment! And kudos to the other films that were nominated. Overall, it was a great year for movies!

Neil Patrick Harris was so prepared for the Oscars! Or so we thought!
The host with the most wore the least clothing ever when he got caught mid-wardrobe change!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see him poke fun at Best Picture nominee Birdman — and with the help of Miles Teller of Whiplash — with a very brief gag!
You know what? Video just isn't good enough! Let's dissect that in GIFs:

Often under-appreciated, it's finally time to give the Director of Photography some love!
That's why we're so happy Emmanuel Lubezki won for his beautiful work on Birdman!
The film — directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu — was praised for what seemed like EXTREMELY long shots that would travel through different set-ups and locations!
What a genius!
If you think you've seen Lubezki's work before… you have!
He also won last year for his work on Gravity!
Hope Emmanuel has enough room on his mantle for his second Oscar!

The Film Independent Spirit Awards is the last awards show before the Academy Awards, and if the winners are any prediction, Birdman and Boyhood are going to have one heck of an Oscar Sunday.
With so many indies gaining recognition, the Independent Spirit Awards are essentially a mini-Oscars this year. Fred Armisen and Kristen Bell hosted the ceremony, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year.
