For the 2015 Oscar nominations, these five directors were been chosen by the Academy as the nominees for Best Director at the 87th Academy Awards. Now it's your turn to tell us which of these five men will take home the Oscar in March. All five of these men directed Best Picture nominees, so chances are, if your pick wins here, they may very well also take home the Best Picture Oscar.

Richard Linklater picked up the Golden Globe for Best Director for Boyhood and will look to continue his winning ways on Oscar night. Hot on his heels will be Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for Birdman, Bennett Miller for Foxcatcher and fan favorite Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel. Rounding out the five nominees is Morten Tyldum who will look to pull off the upset with the Benedict Cumberbatch movie The Imitation Game.
