The Oscar nominations were announced this afternoon (with a little help from Star Trek actor Chris Pine) and there are two clear frontrunners: Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hoteland Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman. Both films have been nominated for nine awards each, including Best Picture.
The Imitation Game comes in a close third with eight nominations, with Richard Linklater's Boyhoodand Clint Eastwood's American Sniper landing six each.
Both Anderson, Inarritu and Linklater have been nominated for Best Director too.
Here are the full list of Best Picture and Best Director nominees:
BEST PICTURE American Sniper Birdman Boyhood The Grand Budapest Hotel The Imitation Game Selma The Theory of Everything Whiplash
BEST DIRECTOR Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Birdman Richard Linklater, Boyhood Morten Tyldum, The Imitation Game Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher
One of the biggest upsets of the nominations? If you're going off internet outrage alone, it's The Lego Movie getting snubbed for Best Animated Feature. (Full disclosure: The Lego Movie is number eight on our best films of the year list, so we're pretty miffed too.)
