** Admit it. You came to this page from something related to ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw''.
** That or Music/WesleyWillis' song "Birdman Kicked My Ass".

!The Film
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Riggan's Birdman persona. Is he a malevolent presence that wants to torment Riggan? Or a gruff voice of reason meant to help Riggan by telling him the truth and boosting his ego?
* AwardSnub: Although the film was nominated for 9, tying ''Film/TheGrandBudapestHotel'' for the most nominations, it received no nomination for Film Editing, which is strange considering how it's one of the most distinctive aspects of the film's style.
