Outside of best picture, most of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel's' nominations were for behind the scenes work, which included best director, best cinematography, and best costume design. 'Boyhood', a film that took over a decade to make, also earned several nominations, including best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette, best supporting actor for Ethan Hawke, and best original screenplay.
Some other notable nominations included first time nominees Eddie Redmayne and Steve Carrell for their films 'The Theory Of Everything' and 'Foxcatcher', respectively. Other films nominated for best picture include, 'American Sniper', 'Selma', 'The Imitation Game', and 'Whiplash'.
The most notable snubs would have to include the Angelina Jolie directed epic, 'Unbroken', which received just one nomination for best mixing and the Jake Gyllenhall starred 'Nightcrawler', which also received just one nomination and it was for best original screenplay.
