Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Sound Editing

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

Previous winners: Inception, The Hurt Locker, The Dark Knight, The Bourne Ultimatum, Letters from Iwo Jima, King Kong
My winner: Fast Five
Who should win: Drive
Who will win: This category sometimes matches up with the Best Sound winner, and it often serves as a consolation prize for a Best Picture nominee or other film that doesn’t win elsewhere. It’s the only nomination for “Drive,” and I’d love for that to take the prize. I wouldn’t bet on “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” here, but the other three are all likely. “Hugo” is the likely choice, but I think this could be where “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” or “War Horse” wins. My money is on “War Horse.”
