Oscar Nominees: Best Film Editing

My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Martian” and “Sicario” over “Spotlight” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: The Big Short, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Spotlight, Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I was so relieved to see “Spotlight” here when I was sure it wouldn’t make the cut that I didn’t even notice a more offensive snub – “The Martian,” which unfortunately predicted a later worse snub you’ll read about in a few hours. “Sicario” didn’t land here but showed up in Best Cinematography and a couple technical categories. Instead, we get “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” honored here, a cool inclusion to go with the four Best Picture frontrunners.

My current bet to win: I actually see it going to The Big Short, but maybe that’s a mistake.
