"Birdman" captured Hollywood's top honor at the Academy Awards Sunday, where the jazzy, surreal comedy about an actor fleeing his superhero past won best picture at a ceremony punctuated by passionate pleas for equality.The awards overwhelmingly went to less-seen independent films and were widely spread around. All eight of the best-picture nominees won awards, including Britain's Eddie Redmayne for his technically nuanced rendering of Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything". Harris gave the Academy Awards a cheery tone that sought to celebrate Hollywood, while slyly parodying it.During the rousing performance of the song "Glory" from the film "Selma," tears streamed down the face of David Oyelowo, who played the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and was infamously left out of the best actor nominees.Immediately afterward, Common and Legend accepted the best song Oscar with a speech that drew a standing ovation.The black-and-white Polish film "Ida" took best foreign language film, marking the first such win for Poland.
