Oscar Nominees: Best Sound Editing

My predictions: 4/5, picking “Fury” and “Whiplash” over “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” and “Unbroken”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: American Sniper, Birdman, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Interstellar, Unbroken

This category looks (or sounds) a whole lot like the Best Sound race, with “Whiplash” swapped out for “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” It’s perplexing both because “Whiplash” seems like it definitely should have been here, and this marks the only nomination for the final chapter of the Peter Jackson trilogy, which got surprisingly snubbed for Best Visual Effects. The rest of the list is pretty standard and I’m all good with it.

My current bet to win: I’ll pick American Sniper to get recognized here over “Interstellar.”
