Oscars frontrunner ‘Birdman’ won with 10 guilds, ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ with 5

Birdman” contended at 11 of the 12 guilds awards (it was not eligible with the writers). This Oscars frontrunner for Best Picture won at least one prize with each of them but for the editors. That just happens to be one category that it is not contending in at the Oscars. (See the full list of winners and nominees for all the guilds awards below).

The Grand Budapest Hotel” also reaped bids with 11 of the 12 (it did not register with the sound mixers) but won with just five of them. Although “The Imitation Game” contended at all but the makeup/hairstylists and sound mixers, it prevailed only with the writers.

Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Gone Girl” both make the cut with eight guilds; the former won a pair of prizes and the latter was blanked. “American Sniper went one for seven. And, of the six films with nominations at six guilds, “Boyhood” won with two while four — “Interstellar,” “Into the Woods,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Unbroken” — claimed a single honor and “Nightcrawler” was shut out.
