LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- "Birdman," the quirky tale of a Hollywood action hero's attempt to make a comeback via the Broadway stage, was declared the best picture of 2014 at Sunday's Academy Awards, taking four prizes in all and eking out a victory over "Boyhood."
Eddie Redmayne, the British actor who took on the role of ALS-afflicted physicist Stephen Hawking, won the best-actor Oscar for "The Theory of Everything." Industry veteran Julianne Moore, a five-time nominee, won her first Oscar for playing a patient struck with early-onset Alzheimer's disease in the film "Still Alice."
"Birdman" director Alejandro Inarritu won the Oscar for best director, as well as best screenplay and best cinematography.
