I think they are the same and indeed the router converts the second form
into the first one once you type it in.
But the meaning is not to deny traffic for any host but to deny traffic FROM
any host as this is a standard ACL.
r5(config)#access-list 1 deny 255.255.255.255 255.255.255.255
r5(config)#do show ip access-list
Standard IP access list 1
10 deny any
