Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Sound

The competition: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Moneyball, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, War Horse

Previous winners: Inception, The Hurt Locker, Slumdog Millionaire, The Bourne Ultimatum, Dreamgirls, King Kong
My winner: Fast Five
Who should win: Hugo
Who will win: This category tends to split evenly between a Best Picture frontrunner and an obvious audio achievement. I don’t think there’s much of a chance that “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” takes this, but beyond that, it’s a draw. “Moneyball” has a real shot here, and so do “War Horse” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” In one of just a precious few categories where it’s not competing with “The Artist,” I think this is a good chance for “Hugo” to win.
