In this movie, Keaton plays Riggan, a faded Hollywood actor famous for his portrayal of a superhero. With a desire to be talked about and adored once again, Riggan hopes to reinvent himself as he writes, directs and stars in a Broadway adaptation of a story written by Raymond Carver.
As one of the most nominated movies at this year's Academy Awards (6 noms!), the Best Picture Oscar is basically Boyhood's category to lose—especially coming off its big win at the Golden Globes. Not only has it found a way to reinvent the movie-making business by taking 12 years (and technically just 45 days!) to film one (nearly three hour) flick, Boyhood has also received almost entirely positive reviews from film critics—it's at 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes!

Just because you've never met someone doesn't mean that you don't actually love them. That's a perfectly normal thing to say as long as you're talking about a celebrity. (If you're not talking about a celebrity, and you say something like that, then you're a crazy person.)

2015 Best Picture nominee The Theory of Everything is based off of the book Stephen Hawking's first wife wrote, Travelling to Infinity: My Life With Stephen. While many people just think of Stephen Hawking as a brilliant cosmologist, the movie shows the adorable love story between Jane Wilde and Stephen.

These days, dorky is in. Everyone loves to love dorks. When I was a kid, being weird and awkward was awful and people hated you more than you deserved. Now, it's hip and cool and people find you more interesting than you really deserve. (Life is a weird carnival ride sometimes.)
