Today is a big day, boys and girls. The nominations for the 2015 Academy Awards have been revealed.

Most of the nominees were pretty predictable, but there are a few notable snubs and surprises in there.

On the surprise side of things, Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” was nominated for Best Picture and Marion Cotillard received a nom for Best Actress for the film “Two Days, One Night.”

On the snub side, “Selma” seems to have gotten the short end of the stick with neither David Oyelowo nor director Ava DuVernay receiving nominations for the film.

Overall, “Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” were nominated more than any other films this year, with nine nominations each.

The Oscars aren’t until February 22, so we’ll just have to wait until then to see who goes home with a golden statue and who goes home empty-handed.

Below, you can see a list of nominees for the categories that I’m sure you’re actually interested in (honestly, who cares about sound editing?).

But, if you do want to see the full list, you can check it out here.
