2015 Oscar nominations announced

THE 2015 Academy Awards nominations have been announced, with two films leading the way by grabbing nine nominations apiece. 

Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ – about a hotel concierge framed for murder – has received nine nominations including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. 

The only other movie to receive as many nominations is Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s ‘Birdman,’ starring Michael Keaton and Edward Norton, telling the story of a faded Hollywood actor famous for playing a superhero. ‘Birdman’ received nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress, among others. 

Both movies won Golden Globe awards last week. The nominations were announced this Thursday morning during a live telecast from Los Angeles. This edition of the Oscars – the 87th Academy Awards – is scheduled to take place on February 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
