After “Birdman” had a great day leading the Golden Globe nominations, it has also turned around and led the St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Association's list along with “The Grand Budapest Hotel”: each film had 10 mentions. “Boyhood” and “Gone Girl” picked up seven each. David Fincher's film was a bit of a homer, noted as a Missouri location shoot in the group's press release.
