Keaton was called to the stage numerous times as Birdman collected seven Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday night in Los Angeles
Michael Keaton rounded off a thrilling awards day – which saw him earn his first Oscar nomination – by falling off stage at the Critics’ Choice Awards.
The actor, who collected two best actor trophies for Birdman at Thursday’s ceremony, later joked “that I took the Birdman flying thing way too far”.
Coming of age drama Boyhood walked away with the coveted best picture award.
The Lego Movie – snubbed by Oscar voters earlier in the day – picked up the best animated feature award.
Jessica Chastain – who collected an award for Interstellar – posed for photos with Reese Witherspoon
Boyhood’s Ethan Hawke, director Linklater, Ellar Coltrane and Patricia Arquette shared four awards
Speaking at the Critics’ Choice Awards about the omission, co-director Phil Lord said: “We made it in order to inspire families and kids and people and we’ve been really justly rewarded, I think, for that.
“We feel really lucky and the awards stuff is it’s own thing, and of course we’re disappointed, but it’s not the reason we made the movie. There’s no way to not be pleased with the outcome of this film.”
Keaton, who was fine after his fall from the stage, won best actor and best actor in a comedy, while Birdman also collected best acting ensemble and original screenplay among its seven-trophy haul.
Keaton was one of the five actors who had earlier learned they would be vying for the best actor Oscar.
Julianne Moore, also an Oscar nominee, picked up the best actress for Still Alice, while JK Simmons was rewarded with a best supporting gong for Whiplash.
