    Look, I respect and admire Iñarritu, I speak spanish too, but all his movies have been kind of pretentious, specially his last two films, while Birdman had pretentious writing, The Revenant has pretentious directing, but the guy is talented, he produces, directs and writes his films.
    Anyway, do you think Iñarritu will get another two oscars for The Revenant? Or those two golden globes for The Revenant were a makeup for Birdman?

    I wish he would give back his three undeserved Oscars, and win two deserving Oscars this year.

    I thought Birdman was fantastic and nothing pretentious. Haven’t seen The Revenant yet but it looks like he is deserves some love again !!

    I didn’t love Birdman, but I completely understand his win for Director last year.

    But The Revenant is something else entirely.  I absolutely adored every single aspect of this movie.  And as I said in my slugfest…the ONLY reason AGI is not a frontrunner for director is because he won last year.  I think it’s a three way race, but it would be foolish to say that he CAN’T win again this year.

    Couldn’t agree more. Birdman being a Best Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay winner makes me want to vomit.

    I love Innaritu’s work, and I would not take exception to him winning director again this year, though I would prefer it to be Miller personally. Screenplay is a bit of a stretch, but Picture is a legitimate possibility. I don’t think there will be a clear frontrunner this season until the PGA.

    Birdman was a better winner than Boyhood would have been.

    I still think that Whiplash may have been 2nd last year, and would have been the most deserving winner. I think Innaritu’s directing win was deserved, and I would have given Boyhood screenplay.

    I really wish he hadn’t have won last year. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED Birdman, but I thought Whiplash was much more deserving. And if he hadn’t have won last year, he would EASILY win this year for The Revenant, which is easily the best film of the year and much more deserving than Birdman in my opinion.

    I don’t usually consider “pretentious” a bad thing – I generally just find it the negative way of saying “ambitious”. Either way, I love Iñárritu and think he should have won his Oscars for Babel if anything. That said, I prefer the Oscars to spread the wealth, and so don’t want him to sweep again. Birdman was one of my favorites last year, but I would’ve split the top 3 awards with Boyhood (director) and Budapest (screenplay) as well. A las, the academy loves Iñárritu and it wasn’t that way.

    Will he win 2 more this year? With such a crowded race, I don’t think it’s out of the question. I don’t see anything as a frontrunner after that shocking Globes, and think even Compton could pull of Best Picture with a good enough campaign.

    I can see him winning BP again as the Revenant is a great cinematic achievement. But for BD, it is a really competitive year. There are two respected director who are almost in the dawn of their career in this race (Scott and Miller). 
    As for Birdman, I agreed that it rightfully won over Boyhood. But I like Whiplash and the Imitation Game more. Boyhood is very very boring.

    5 Oscars in 2 years are insane. Moreover, considering 3 of those would have been undeserved, it’s also kind of a joke to many filmmakers who haven’t ever won.

    This is what happens when you win for an undeserved work. When you eventually come back with a better one, for which you truly deserved to win, you may not win since many voters think that you are already a winner and hence no rush to recognize you again so soon….

    Iñárritu is a very strong director, so I can see the nominations.  He is a little over-the-top for my tastes (can you guess I liked Boyhood a little more?), but I did like both Birdman and The Revenant.  I don’t care for the endings of either movie, though.  I thought “Seriously?  This is your ending?”  Maybe it’s just me.  Loved Babel, though.  I’m hoping for any of the other directors to win this year.

    Stop the whinning…Birdman deserved all the Oscar that it rightfully won over Boringhood and every other nominees. The Revenant is great and it would be a worthy winner but I’d give the BD award to George Miller first.

    I’ve mistakenly upvoted Morty’s comment but I agree with Asgaroth and Tmpost.

    Birdman deserved all three wins. 

    And things might change in the comming weeks and The Revenant might make it further than we had expected. Who knows if he gets those two Oscars again, I think it’s a bit much, but they wouldn’t be undeserved. The Revenant is a better choice than Spotlight or The Big Short.

    People keep talking about Boyhood. Like stop. It wasn’t the film which was robbed by Birdman. It was the wonderful, amazing, one in a million masterpiece THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL which got robbed lol
