‘Birdman’ and ‘The Imitation Game’ lead 2015 Golden Globes nominations

The complete list of 2015 Golden Globes nominations has been revealed. Showbiz black comedy Birdman leads the film pack with seven nominations, followed by the The Imitation Game with five nods. The Theory of Everything and The Grand Budapest Hotel scooped up four nominations each.

Just one day after the SAG Awards revealed their nomination for the year's best films - and putting Jennifer Aniston on her way to a potential Oscar - the former Friends star garnered an important Golden Globes nomination for Best Actress in a Drama.


The Globes echoed the SAG Awards by also nominating Reese Witherspoon for Wild, Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything, Julianne Moore, for Still Alice, and Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl.

Julianne Moore followed in Benedict Cumberbatch's SAG footsteps and found herself with two nominations, for Still Alice, and for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for David Cronenberg's satire Map To The Stars.

Amy Adams, Meryl Streep, Dame Helen Mirren, and Quvenzhane Wallis join Julianne in the latter category.

Best Male Actor in a Motion Picture nominees included Steve Carell for his daring turn in Foxcatcher, David Oyelowo for American civil rights drama Selma, and Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, as well as Brit stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne who are both expected to make strong showings at the BAFTAs and Oscars in 2015.

Benedict's co-star Keira Knightley, who is reportedly expecting her first child, also gained a nomination for her work in the Second World War drama, The Imitation Game. The film, which tells the true tale of Alan Turing, the code-breaker who broke the Enigma code at Bletchley Park, has swept the board with nominations for Best Film, Best Screenplay and Best Score.

Downton Abbey also scored big with nominations for Joanne Frogett, who plays head housemaid Anna in the ITV drama, in the Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television category, along with Allison Janney for Mom.

Thriller Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund, was nominated for Best Screenplay along withGrand Budapest Hotel, Birdman, Boyhood, and The Imitation Game.

Newlywed George Clooney will be receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award this year.
