Michael Keaton caught pulling out an Oscars speech before another actor's name announced

After winning the Golden Globe for his leading role in “Birdman,” Michael Keaton was the favourite Sunday night to win an Oscar for best actor.

But Keaton may have gotten a little carried away, appearing to have pulled out a notecard with his acceptance speech on it as Cate Blanchett read Eddie Redmayne’s name as the winner instead.

As the camera pans to Keaton for his reaction shot, you can see him quickly put something away into his tuxedo pocket.
