Oscar Nominees: Best Sound Editing

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Rush” over “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and “Lone Survivor”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: All is Lost, Captain Phillips, Gravity, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Lone Survivor

This category looks (or sounds) a whole lot like the Best Sound race, with “Inside Llewyn Davis” swapped out for the similarly-ignored “All is Lost,” which nets its only nomination here. Truth be told, that was probably the strongest aspect of the film. I’m glad to see “Captain Phillips” and “Gravity,” and indifferent about the other two I haven’t seen. Where is “Rush” though?

My current bet to win: I’ll go out on a limb and say All is Lost.
