Craven vs Inarritu: the poster of the "white" night of the Oscars

A list dominated by "Birdman" of Alejandro Inarritu and "The Grand Budapest Hotel" by Wes Anderson, with 9 nominations each, among them best picture, best director and best screenplay.

The Mexican Director's comedy actors are, however, the most nominated of the two films, such as the ex-batman Michael Keaton, in the category of lead actor and the duo Emma Stone and Edward Norton, in supporting roles.

The hotel depicted in Wes Anderson's comedy, the actors were left homeless in the choice of the Academy who preferred to highlight the film in several technical categories, such as best costume, best editing and best music.

The movie "imitation Game" by Morten Tyldum, has eight nominations. Beyond best picture, Director and adapted screenplay, the British rising star Benedict Cumberbatch is nominated for best actor, as well as Keira Knightley for the category of best supporting actress.

The film "Boyhood" by Richard Linklater arises in "third place" with six nominations, like "American Sniper of a Clint Eastwood doesn't appear however in the list of candidates for Best Director.

The Linklater film, filmed over 12 years with the same actors had been placed on the launch pad for the Oscars by winning last week's ambitions to "golden globes". Beyond best picture, best director and best original screenplay, the actors Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette are now nominated in the categories of supporting roles.

The Academy's choices raise controversy on social networks by failing to include a single black actor on the list of nominees for the first time in 19 years, a debate inflamed by the absence of Ava DuVernay of list of top directors for the film "Selma" about Marthin Luther King Jr.
