Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nominees announced

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" received 11 nominations for the 20th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

“The Grand Budapest Hotel” received 11 nominations for the 20th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

As a longtime member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, I am pleased to announce the nominees for the organization’s 20th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. I cast my nomination ballot Friday, as did the other 300 or so members of the group, so the nominees represent something of a critical consensus of the best of 2014 cinema.

Now, we get to digest the nomination list for about a month before voting for the winners, which will be announced during a live TV broadcast Jan. 15 on A&E. The show will air at 6 p.m. PT (9 p.m. ET), and it’s always a lot of fun.

“Birdman” leads all contenders with 13 nominations, but “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Boyhood” aren’t far behind, with 11 and eight nods respectively.

Following is the complete nomination list …
