Michael Keaton (Birdman)

The winner of the 2014 SofaWatch Movie Awards Leading Actor went to the outstanding Michael Keaton for his performance in Birdman.

In the film Michael plays the character of Riggan. The following description of this character is taken from Wikipedia.

Riggan Thomson is a washed-up Hollywood actor famous for playing the superhero Birdman in blockbuster movies decades earlier. Riggan is tormented by the voice of Birdman, and imagines himself performing small feats of telekinesis and levitation.

Michael has played numerous roles over his long spanning acting career including -

Monarch in Need For Speed

The voice of Ken in Toy Story 3

Jonathan Rivers in White Noise

Dogberry in Much Ado About Nothing

Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batma

Michael has still got what it takes to act and bring an explosive performance. I look forward to seeing him in many more films for years to come.
