The nominations for the Oscars have been announced today and seven films will be gunning for this year's top prize, the Oscar for Best Picture.

The favourite with the bookies to take home the gong will be Richard Linklater's coming-of-age film Boyhood. However, it will be pushed hard by two comedies in the form of Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman and Wes Craven's The Grand Budapest Hotel.

British leading men Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne will be hoping their films The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything can sneak a surprise win. While Clint Eastwood's American Sniper and Damien Chazelle's music-based drama Whiplash complete the list of nominees.
