As the names of the nominees were announced, Keaton actually had his pre-written acceptance speech in his hand. So when Eddie Redmayne was actually called as Best Actor for his role in The Theory of Everything, cameras caught Keaton putting his acceptance speech back into his pocket. 


Keaton did, however, applaud just as enthusiastically for Redmayne as anyone else and did not seem a poor sport about it. When the cast of Birdman gathered after winning Best Picture, Keaton said "It's great to be here -- who am I kidding?"
