Oscars update: ‘Birdman,’ ‘Grand Budapest’ reap bids with 10 of 11 guilds

With Tuesday’s nominations announcements by Directors Guild, Cinema Audio Society and Visual Effects Society, 11 guilds have now weighed in with their picks for the best of the year. The last one — the Motion Picture Sound Editors — reveals it line-up on Wednesday. 

Two films — “Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel”  — have reaped bids with 10 of the 11 guilds. “Birdman” was not eligible with the writers while “Grand Budapest” did not register with the sound mixers.

The Imitation Game” has scored with all but the makeup/hairstylists and sound mixers. “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Gone Girl” make the cut with seven while “American Sniper,”  “Boyhood” (our frontrunner for Best Picture) and “Nightcrawler” nabbed nods with six each.

Selma,” which we currently have ranked third for Best Picture, has been all but shut out save for costume design and hairstyling noms due to a lack of screeners. 

Below, a breakdown by picture of guild nominations to date.
