Two extravagant comedies, Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel, have tied for the most Oscar nominations with nine nods each, including best picture.

They were joined in best picture nominations by Boyhood, Whiplash, The Theory Of Everything, The Imitation Game, American Sniper and Selma.

The Imitation Game trailed close behind with eight nominations, while Clint Eastwood's Navy Seal drama American Sniper landed six nods including best actor for Bradley Cooper.

Also with six nominations was Richard Linklater's coming-of-age epic Boyhood, which remains the best picture favourite.

This year's ceremony on February 22 will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
