What a year it has been. The films of 2014 were unique which made the awards race a little tough to follow. In the end two films that came out earlier in 2014 will uncommonly be center-stage: “Boyhood” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”
“The Grand Budapest Hotel” is set to take home a bundle of technical awards while “Boyhood” is securely ready to take home the Best Picture/Director categories.
It was tough to find five to fit each category, with very few films “secure” in each one. But here is what we predict will get nominations in each category. Go to the Oscar page to see alternates.
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything
