In a move that inspires little other than a deep sigh, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science unleashed the 2015 Oscar nominees to a thud. With snubs that ran the category gambit – David Fincher‘s Gone Girl was almost entirely ignored, Dan Gilroy’s transcendent Nightcrawler received a single nomination (Best Original Screenplay), Ava DuVernay’s Selma went almost entirely without recognition (although received a Best Pic nomination), The Lego Movie wasn’t nommed for Animated – and unfettered celebration for the likes of Morten Tyldum’s by-the-books The Imitiation Game, which nabbed 8 mighty nominations, while Clint Eastwood’s jingoistic portrait of a trigger-happy, home-bred Americano in American Sniper scored 6.

Listed below are the nominees with those that I called highlighted in red. But first, a run down of how many noms each film scored:
