 The quotation from Psa. 45 was most distinct and conclusive....the one object for which it is cited is to prove that God recognizes the Messiah as God. It is not men only nor angels, nor Jews nor Gentiles. It is " God," the divine title, not of special earthly relationship, but of essential nature in contrast with the creature. What an answer to reproach and rejection! (Hebrews 1:10-14 by W. Kelly)

As far as grammar is concerned, I think there need be no question that both the Hebrew and the Greek are capable of either construction. Compare Ps. 50:7; 67:7 for the nominative; and Psalm 43:4 for the vocative, as noticed by another. In verse 8, ὀ θεὸς is unquestionably used in a vocative sense; but this is no way necessary here. The context must decide; and to my mind the anointing would not be congruous with the vocative force in verse 9, so that I incline to the Authorized Version. (Bible Treasury 7:271)
