So, the movie "Birdman" won all these prestigious awards...Why?

Besides the superb acting and camera work, I dont quite get it. The story really wasn't much of anything. Was it supposed to be inspiring? Didnt seem revealing or enigmatic. Dramatic? sure, but a bit depressing really.

Entertaining? ah only because the acting was top notch. But to win so many awards, I'm confused.

As a writer of screen myself, it didnt seem like anything we haven't seen before or even very emotionally poignant.

In the movie, Keaton's speech to the stage critic was really the only thing that I felt stuck out, and mainly due to Keaton's performance. But best screenplay of 2014/15??? C'mon.
