Luther and Beasts of No Nation. For Luther, what better way to celebrate the end of a great run than with this stellar acknowledgement?

Alicia Vikander: Best Actress in The Danish Girl and Best Supporting Actress in Ex Machina

The second of the double nominees, this Swedish actress may be a newcomer in the U.S., but is obviously here to stay. She told THR:

"I’m in Berlin — I’m on the way to the airport. We just had a screening of The Danish Girl, and I was doing press all day. I came out of a roundtable interview when I heard the news of my nominations. I just couldn’t believe it. I just jumped! It’s two films that I’ve been so fortunate to make. They were two of the best scripts — they were so brilliant, and so extremely different. Both of these films are independent films. I mean, Ex Machina was a little indie film that came out a while ago. It’s a nomination that honors small independent movies. This is all so surreal."
