This morning, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced the nominations for this year’s Oscars. There were some surprises, some upsets and chatter about the Academy’s choices. The films to beat this year are “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Birdman,” which lead the nominations at nine each. “The Imitation Game” is close behind with eight nominations.
Neil Patrick Harris is set to take the stage on Sunday, Feb. 22, as the host of the 87th annual Academy Awards, but before he does, we want to hear from you. Which films, directors and actors do you think should take home a gold statuette?
Before the big night, we here at Art Beat will tally up the results and see how close your predictions are to the outcomes — we’ll even see if you can beat last year, when you accurately predicted six out of eight awards.
