The 87th Annual Academy Award nominations are out and Alejandro G. Iñárritu's flashy Birdman leads the charge with nine nominations, followed by WWII drama The Imitation Game (8), Clint Eastwood's American Sniper (7) and Richard Linklater's Boyhood (6).

The Best Song category includes "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from documentary Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me; "Everything is Awesome" (performed by The Lonely Island and Tegan & Sara) from The LEGO Movie (which got snubbed in the Best Animated Film category); music industry comedy Begin Again's "Lost Stars" which was co-written by Greg Kurstin (The Bird & the Bee) and former child actress Danielle Brisebois; "Grateful" (written by vet Diane Warren) from Beyond the Lights; and "Glory" from Selma (performed by John Legend and Common) which won the Golden Globe for Best Song last weekend. The Best Score nominees include onetime 4AD and Fatcat signee Jóhann Jóhannsson's work on The Imitation Game which won the Golden Globe.
