Birdman star Michael Keaton thought he would win the Best Actor award at Sunday’s Oscars because the movie he starred in was collecting almost all the major awards. He was so sure he would win … he even brought out his acceptance speech from his pocket, in anticipation for his expected inevitable call up onstage as the winner.
But when award presenter Kate Blanchett announced The Theory of Everything star Eddie Redmayne as the winner, the camera caught Keaton tucking the piece of paper containing his speech under his arm to clap … and then seconds later, he was caught again on camera hastily putting the paper back into his jacket pocket.
‘Saddest moment of the night was Michael Keaton putting his speech back in his pocket after realizing he lost #Oscars #oscars2015,’ wrote the Vine video poster.
Well, these things happen.
