Which movie will take home the Oscar for best picture at the 87th Annual Academy Awards? It's time for your predictions as to which film you think should win the 2015 Best Picture Oscar. There are plenty of great 2014 movies vying for the prestigious award including critical favorites like Richard Linklater's Boyhood, Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, and Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game. But don't underestimate Oscar night mainstays like David Fincher with Gone Girl, Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu with Birdman, or Peter Jackson with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

A couple of 2014's best actresses have multiple movies that are Oscar frontrunners. Reese Witherspoon has two films - Wild and The Good Lie, while Jessica Chastain has A Violent Year, Interstellar, and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby that could all be up for contention. Both actresses have previously won the Best Actress Oscar and might be able to repeat in 2015.

Other Oscar night movies to consider in your Oscar pool include The Theory of Everything and Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel. So, which 2014 films snag spots on the Academy's shortlist and which film will win the 2015 Best Picture Oscar? Vote below and feel free to add other films you think might have a chance.
