While we’re more than ready to put a cap on 2014, the awards season still rages on as the Writers Guild of America and the American Society of Cinematographers have weighed in with their nominations. First up, the ASC nominations are what one might expect, with Oscar bait like The Imitation Game getting in over the quality work found in Inherent Vice and The Immigrant (see our rundown of the best cinematography of 2014 for a more comprehensive look).
As for WGA, Birdman, The Theory of Everything, and Selma were disqualified off the bat, which leaves Boyhood, Whiplash, Gone Girl, Nightcrawler, and more, with some shock that Guardians of the Galaxy made the cut. Check out the nominations for both below ahead of the WGA ceremony held on Feb. 14th and ASC the following day.
