Nominees for Best Drama include Boyhood, Foxcatcher, and The Theory of Everything. Meanwhile, Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and St. Vincent earned nods for Best Comedy.

The category for Best Director pins Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel) against David Fincher (Gone Girl) and Richard Linklater (Boyhood). Anderson and Linklater also earned Best Screenplay nods for their respective films.

In the Best Actor Drama category, Steve Carrell (Foxcatcher) will face off against Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) and Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game). Reese Witherspoon (Wild), Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), and Jennifer Aniston (Cake) received nominations for Best Actress Drama.
