This would be my ranking:
1 Alejandro G. Iñárritu "Birdman"
2 Richard Linklater "Boyhood"
3 Wes Anderson "The Grand Budapest Hotel"
4 Morten Tyldum "The Imitation Game"
5 Bennett Miller "Foxcatcher"

Easy win for Birdman/Inarritu this year for me, the only film here that I actually enjoyed and thought was unique and benefited from having that particular director as the visionary behind it all. I've said before that I didn't enjoy then but at least Boyhood and TGBH were unique. TIG was competently directed and an enjoyable movie so a decent nominee really even thought the direction wasn't particularly different. Foxcatcher was just thoroughly dull and the direction was nothing special, not a great nominee really imo. If it was up to me Damien Chazelle would've been in this line-up for Whiplash and preferably won!

After looking back at the Oscars from 2015, these would be my winners:
Best Picture: Whiplash
Best Director: Alejandro G. Iñárritu – Birdman
Best Actor: Eddie Redmayne – The Theory of Everything
Best Actress: Julianne Moore – Still Alice
Best Supporting Actor: J. K. Simmons – Whiplash
Best Supporting Actress: Keira Knightley – The Imitation Game
Best Original Screenplay: Birdman
Best Adapted Screenplay: Whiplash
Best Animated Feature Film: Big Hero 6
Best Original Score: Interstellar
Best Original Song: "Glory" from Selma
Best Production Design: Into the Woods
Best Cinematography: Birdman
Best Makeup and Hairstyling: Guardians of the Galaxy
Best Costume Design: Maleficent
Best Film Editing: Whiplash
Best Visual Effects: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Whiplash - 4
Birdman - 3
The Theory of Everything - 1
Still Alice - 1
The Imitation Game - 1
Big Hero 6 - 1
Interstellar - 1
Selma - 1
Into the Woods - 1
Guardians of the Galaxy - 1
Maleficent - 1
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - 1


Whiplash was EASILY my favourite awards-y film this year though and deserved more nominations, it would've got a bigger tally in my winners if it was nominated like in this category for example!
