Oscar Nominees: Best Film Editing

My predictions: 4/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: The Father, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal, The Trial of the Chicago 7

This is the third year in a row that all five nominees in this category have also contended for Best Picture. I had predicted “Tenet” to grab a spot, and I’m sure that others were surprised by the omission of “Mank” and might have expected “Judas and the Black Messiah” or “Minari” to show up here. Instead, The Father took a slot, joining Sound of Metal and Promising Young Woman, as well as the more expected Nomadland and The Trial of the Chicago 7, which might have been in trouble had they missed here.

My current bet to win: I think this goes to Sound of Metal, but I’m not overly confident about that.
