‘Big Birdman ‘ parody is also a winner!


Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman won the Best Picture Award at the 2015 Academy Awards, but they weren’t the only winners. Sesame Street’s puppeteer veteran Caroll Spinney starred in a Birdman parody clip of his life with Big Bird and it’s amazing.

Spinney is best known for his puppeteering and voice for Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch and for his past work with Jim Henson. (What a class act.) It makes me wish they made a real movie out of the life of Spinney and his alter ego, Big Bird.

Check it out below:

For your Oscar consideration: A veteran puppeteer, who plays an avian icon, battles his ego and attempts to find his way back to a certain furry and friendly street. This is ‘Big Birdman.’
