Four Oscars

"It's a beautiful day. Come on. Stand up! So you're not a great actor. Who cares? You're much more than that. You're a movie star, man! You're a global force! Don't you get it? You spent your life building a bank account and a reputation, and you blew'em both. Fuck it. We'll make a comeback. They're waiting for something huge. Well, give it to them. Shave off that pathetic goatee. Get some surgery! Sixty's the new thirty, motherfucker.
You're the original. You paved the way for these other clowns. Give people what they want: old-fashioned apocalyptic porn. Birdman: the phoenix rises. You're larger than life, man".
(Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, Alejandro González Iñárritu 2014)
