Movies. 2015 Oscar Nominations: Birdman

This Thursday morning, the Academy Awards announced the 2015 Oscar Nominations. Our favorite for the Best Picture award is Birdman, but Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hostel can be serious candidates. We miss Interstellar in the Best Picture category and Christopher Nolan in the Directing category, but this is just our taste.

Best Picture

American Sniper
Birdman
Boyhood
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
Selma
The Theory of Everything

Our personal choice: Birdman

Actress in a Supporting Role

Patricia Arquette, “Boyhood”
Laura Dern, “Wild”
Emma Stone, “Birdman”
Keira Knightley, “The Imitation Game”
Meryl Streep, “Into the Woods”

Our personal choice: Meryl Streep is always a good choice but Keira Knightley is great on the English film The Imitation Game.

We are excited to watch the ceremony and, of course, we expect very much of Neil Patrick Harris as a host.

You can see all the nominations in the official Oscars site.
