Kristen Bell & Fred Armisen Spoof ‘Birdman,’ ‘Whiplash’ In Spirit Awards Opening

Hosts Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen kicked off IFC’s broadcast of the 30th Independent Spirit Awards by spoofing some of the Best Feature nominees. Adam Scott, Bill Hader and Miles Teller also joined in on the fun.

The sketch included long, uncut “Birdman”-style shots, a shout out to J.K. Simmons’ “rushing or dragging” speech in “Whiplash” and just the right amount of slapping to confirm that this is definitely not the Oscars. Watch below.
