Oscar Nominees: Best Sound

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: Greyhound, Mank, News of the World, Soul, Sound of Metal

Combining the sound races into just one category won’t make me any better at predicting the nominees, but I am proud that I guessed that both Tom Hanks movie, Greyhound and News of the World, would score, and I’m especially relieved that the former made it in since that was an underappreciated technical feat (read all about it here). I’m puzzled not to see “Tenet” or “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” here but I’m glad that Sound of Metal is. Rounding out the category are nominations leader Mank and a film expected to win its other two bids, Soul.

My current bet to win: I think Sound of Metal can win this.
