I’d like to know the name of the director of this Birdman spoof, which began yesterday’s Spirit Awards presentation. Fred Armisen, Adam Scott, Kristin Bell, Miles Teller…perfect. And then the whipped cream and cherry on top with Bill Hader doing an inspired comic riff on Alejandro G. Inarritu. Remember those spoof reels that ran when Billy Crystal hosted the Oscars in ’97? This is easily as good as any of those. Where and when was it shot, how many takes, etc.? More clips after the jump, including Foxcatcher‘s Bennett Miller offering a faux-apology on behalf of Paul Thomas Anderson‘s slam of American Airlines.
