Immediate reactions: Hello there, Bradley Cooper. “American Sniper” didn’t get much love from the Golden Globes, but the academy was in a different frame of mind. Of course, that meant there was no space for David Oyelowo, who turned in a stunning performance as Martin Luther King Jr. in “Selma.”

“Grateful,” “Beyond the lights”

Visual Effects
“Interstellar”
“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”
“Guardians of the Galaxy”
“Captain America: Winter Soldier”
“X-Men: Days of Future Past”
Immediate reactions: This is the one category that consistently shows love for the blockbuster action and superhero movies, and this year was no exception. This was one of two nominations for “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the biggest moneymaker of 2014, which also happened to be well-liked by critics. “Transformers” had a rough week. Thiis was the only real Oscar hope for the fourth installment of “Transformers,” and the movie led the Razzie nominations, which were announced earlier this week.
Documentary Short Subject
“Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1”
“Joanna”
“Our Curse”
“White Earth”
“The Reaper”

Documentary Feature
“Citizenfour”
“Last Days in Vietnam”
“Virunga”
“The Salt of the Earth”
“Finding Vivian Maier”
Immediate reaction: “Citizenfour,” Laura Poitras’s thrilling documentary about Edward Snowden, was a sure bet. The academy also showed love for Rory Kennedy’s documentary about the fall of Saigon, “Last Days of Vietnam,” and the universally-praised “Virunga.” If there’s a snub to be found, it’s for “Life Itself,” the much-praised doc about Roger Ebert.

Film Editing
Sandra Adair, “Boyhood”
Tom Cross, “Whiplash”
William Goldenberg, “The Imitation Game”
Joel Cox and Gary Roach, “American Sniper”
Barney Pilling, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Sound Editing
“Interstellar”
“Unbroken”
“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”
“American Sniper”
“Birdman”
Immediate reaction: Despite some complaints about the epic volume levels of “Interstellar,” Christopher Nolan’s movie managed to score nominations for both sound editing and sound mixing. This was the only nomination for Peter Jackson’s final (we think…?) “Hobbit” installment.

Sound Mixing
Mark Weingarten, “Interstellar”
Thomas Curley, ”Whiplash”
“Unbroken”
“American Sniper”
“Birdman”

Production Design
“Into the Woods”
“The Grand Budapest Hotel”
“Interstellar”
“The Imitation Game”
“Mr. Turner”
Immediate reaction: “Into the Woods” was shut out of the best picture category, and Timothy Spall failed to secure a nomination for his impressive acting in “Mr. Turner,” but both movies landed here, and deservedly so.

Short Film – Live Action
“Boogaloo and Graham”
“Aya”
“Butterlamp”
“Parvenah”
“The Phone Call”

Short Film – Animated
“Feast”
“The Bigger Picture”
“A Single Life”
“The Dam Keeper”
“Me and My Moulton”

Animated Feature Film
“Big Hero 6”
“How to Train Your Dragon 2”
“The Boxtrolls”
“The Tale of the Princess Kaguya”
“Song of the Sea”
Immediate reaction: The big surprise here is that “The LEGO Movie” didn’t wasn’t nominated. Instead of the blockbuster (“LEGO” had the fourth highest domestic box office returns in 2014), the under-the-radar, yet-to-be-released “Song of the Sea” scored a nom.
