Narrowing the Field
Just like the Best Picture race, it's between Boyhood and Birdman. That means Linklater, in his most personal film, takes on Iñárritu in his. In the past three years, Best Picture and Director have not matched up. It might happen again. Yikes!
If anyone but Linklater or Iñárritu wins.
Linklater. I've made my case.
Iñárritu. Maybe because Birdman has more bells and whistles. Or maybe not.
