For the 2015 Oscar nominations, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences selected eight films to vie for the Best Picture award at the 2015 Academy Awards. Which of these eight movies do you think should have taken home one of the most prestigious prizes in the Hollywood? Among the nominees were Boyhood, Birdman, andThe Theory of Everything. Should American Sniper, The Imitation Game, Whiplash or Selma have mounted more momentum heading into Oscar night, or should Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel (which came out way back in March 2014) have taken home the prize?

Vote for the Best Picture contenders you think should take home the award at the 87th Academy Awards - even though we all know which one already won.
