Oscar Predictions: Best Sound Editing

Last year’s nominees: The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Slumdog Millionaire, Wanted, Wall-E

The contenders: Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Up, Star Trek, District 9, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Inglourious Bastereds, Nine, 2012, The Lovely Bones

The rundown: Since I really don’t know much about this category, I’m predicting the same five nominees as in the Best Sound field. I’m also going with my hunch that “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” will be snubbed altogether here. It’s worth noting that, in the three years that this category has had five rather than three nominees, the match-up between the two categories has been 4/5, and only in 2007 were the winners the same. Still, I think this year could break that trend, though I have no clue about what will actually happen. We’ll see – this will likely not be the most thrilling race of the whole awards.

Forecasted winner: Avatar
