Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Sound Editing

The competition: Argo (Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van der Ryn), Django Unchained (Wylie Stateman), Life of Pi (Eugene Gearty and Philip Stockton), Skyfall (Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers), Zero Dark Thirty (Paul N.J. Ottosson)

Previous winners: Hugo, Inception, The Hurt Locker, The Dark Knight, The Bourne Ultimatum, Letters from Iwo Jima
My winner: The Avengers
The facts: Getty and Stockton won last year for “Hugo,” Ottosson won in 2009 for “The Hurt Locker,” and Hallbeg and Landers won in 2007 for “The Bourne Ultimatum.” Der Ryn won before for “The Two Towers” and “King Kong,” and Stateman has now been nominated five times but never won. Aadahl was nominated for the first time last year for “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”
Who should win: “Skyfall” or “Zero Dark Thirty”
Who will win: It could be “Skyfall,” but I think this will be the consolation prize for Zero Dark Thirty.
