Edward Norton on 'Budapest,' 'Birdman' and final bows

In "The Grand Budapest Hotel," Wes Anderson's candy-bright fable of decades in the life of the title European edifice, he's Inspector Henckels, a late-1930s police officer and a gentleman, a bright flash of civility before a dark era. The film received nine Academy Award nominations.

In "Birdman," Alejandro G. Iñárritu's loopy, dark comedy about show business and strange miracles, he's actor Mike Shiner, a last-minute hire for the vanity Broadway project backed by Michael Keaton's fading ex-superstar. It too received nine Academy Award nominations, including his supporting actor nomination.
