BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Michael Keaton has won the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy for "Birdman."

Keaton, in a career-topping performance, plays an aging movie actor trying to exorcise his superhero past — and jumpstart his fading career — by putting on a serious Broadway play.

The other nominees Sunday were: Ralph Fiennes, "The Grand Budapest Hotel"; Bill Murray, "St. Vincent"; Joaquin Phoenix, "Inherent Vice"; and Christoph Waltz, "Big Eyes."

The 72nd annual Golden Globes are airing live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
