Michael Keaton’s acclaimed drama Birdman is poised to win best picture at the 2015 Oscars after sweeping the board at the Independent Spirit Awards on the eve of Hollywood’s biggest night.

Other big winners at the ceremony in Santa Barbara, California on Saturday night included other Oscars favorites Boyhood, Nightcrawler and Whiplash, which all landed two awards each.

Richard Linklater won Best Director for Boyhood, while his movie’s star Patricia Arquette won the Best Supporting Actress honor.
