Oscar Nominations 2015

This past year saw its fair share of amazing films made, from big blockbuster hits to small indie projects. The Oscars race is a difficult thing as accolades do not singularly determine a film’s worth, and many great films have gone, and will go, unrecognized.

Leading the nominations is Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel with nine nominations each followed by The Imitation Game which received eight nominations.

Watch the Oscar race conclude on Sunday, February 22.
