Oscar Nominees: Best Sound Editing

My predictions: 2/5
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Drive, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, War Horse

I did even worse guessing here than I did with Best Sound, but I do have to report that this features one of the best inclusions this year, and not one I foresaw at all. In its lone mention, “Drive” gets recognized for its sound editing, which was absolutely fantastic and made for a terrific film. The other three nominees are also great, making this a pretty decent category, though I really wish “Fast Five” could have been here (it will be in my AFT Award nominees).

My current bet to win: I could hope for “Drive,” but I think this might go to either “War Horse” or “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”
