Apparenrly, awareness was low on Selma. In a rather sizable snub, it was left out of the list unveiled today. That film’s screener was one of the last to arrive.

Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken is a complete no-show and some British pics like Locke and Calvary were also shut out.

Apart from the major U.S. nominees... Grand Budapest Hotel(11), Birdman (10),Boyhood (5), Whiplash (5), Nightcrawler(4) and Interstellar (4), there is a big British burst represented this year.
