Oscars update: ‘Grand Budapest Hotel,’ ‘Imitation Game’ reap bids with all 7 guilds

Prior to Oscar voting closing on Thursday (Jan. 8), we have heard from seven of the guilds as to their picks for the best of the year. An eighth, the Makeup & Hairstylist Guild, chimes in tomorrow but the other four don’t announce their nominees till next week: Directors Guild and Cinema Audio Society (next Tuesday) and Motion Picture Sound Editors and Visual Effects Society (next Wednesday). 

Only two films — “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Imitation Game” — have reaped bids across the board. Another strong Oscar contender, “Birdman,” has scored with six guilds and was not eligible with the seventh, the WGA. “Boyhood,” our frontrunner for Best Picture, was cited by five guilds while “Selma,” which we currently have ranked third for Best Picture, has been all but shut out save for a costume design nod due to a lack of screeners. 

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