The 87th Academy Award nominations (提名) were announced on Jan 15, and The Grand Budapest Hotel stood out as a favorite with nine nominations, including Best Picture. Check out some other Best Picture nominees (被提名者) to see if you missed any of last year’s top Hollywood films.

The Imitation Game
This historical thriller is about British computer scientist, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), the father of artificial intelligence (人工智能). At the start of World War II, Turing was asked to join a select team of mathematical geniuses to decode (解码) the system the Nazis used to send military (军事的) messages. Besides the actual breaking of the code, Cumberbatch’s portrayal of Turing’s personality, a mixture of decency (正派) and shyness, is also a highlight (最精彩的部分) of the movie.

Birdman
This dark comedy film is about how Riggan Thomson, a faded star once famous for his superhero roles, struggles to regain fame. American actor Michael Keaton, 63, who has a similar experience to Thomson’s, plays the leading role.

Selma
A stellar cast (主要演员) including talk show queen Oprah Winfrey may be one reason to see Selma. But that the film focuses on Martin Luther King Jr.’s struggle for civil rights also makes it worth viewing. Based on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches, the film is a chronicle (编年史) of King’s (David Oyelowo) campaign for political rights for African-American people.

The Theory of Everything
We know English theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking for his significant (重大的) scientific discoveries, especially his black hole theories. This biographical (传记的) film reveals (透露) the scientist’s (played by Eddie Redmayne) secret romantic relationship with Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones), whom he meets and falls in love with at Cambridge and who later becomes his first wife.

Boyhood
American Director Richard Linklater did an experiment in this film, using the same cast for 12 years to record a boy’s growth. In two and a half hours, we see Mason, a Texas boy from a divorced family, grow from 6-year-old boy to a freshman in college.
