The shortlist:

 

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2"
"Foxcatcher"
"The Grand Budapest Hotel"
"Guardians of the Galaxy"
"Maleficent"
"Noah"
"The Theory of Everything"

 

My response, in which I wonder if the award is as much for the "makeup" on the animals as it is for the humans. In my post, I include three excerpts from a featurette (available only on iTunes and the Target edition of the Blu-Ray) called 'Special Makeup FX on Noah', which spends maybe half its time talking about the animals (and the other half looking at characters like Methuselah, etc.).
