Best Editing

The category is known for its close correlation with Best Picture. Since 1981, every Best Picture winner has been at least nominated in this category. And of those 31 races, 15 editing champs went on to win the top prize.

Two-time nominee William Goldenberg ("The Insider," "Seabiscuit") could be a two-time contender this year. He soloed on Ben Affleck's "Argo" and cut Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" with one-time nominee Dylan Tichenor 

Goldenberg is likely to win for one of these two bids. (See latest odds here.)

Bigleow's last film ("The Hurt Locker") won this award in 2009. Indeed, this category often favors those sort of frenetic, action-driven films ("The Bourne Ultimatum," "Black Hawk Down," "The Matrix,"). (Track changing odds in this race by scrolling down to the bottom of this page.)  

Large-scale epics ("The Aviator," "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," "Titanic") also do well in this race as do films with multiple storylines ("Crash," "Traffic").

Michael Kahn won his three Oscars for Steven Spielberg pictures ("Raiders of the Lost Ark," 1981; "Schindler's List," 1993; and "Saving Private Ryan") and is a likely nominee for "Lincoln." That would bring his total bids to a record eight. 

Chris Dickens won for the latter with "Slumdog Millionaire" and is a strong contender this year for the former with "Les Miserables." 

And Peter McNulty is predicted to reap his first Oscar bid for "The Master."
