    I am predicting that Creed will win this year’s Oscar for Best Film Editing. Of course, I can’t do so in the predictions center here on Gold Derby since it still isn’t included in the odds! Creed is missing from several different categories in which it has a good chance of being nominated. (Cinematography, Score, Original Screenplay, and Director; I am predicting the first two, and feel it has a chance in the latter two).

    At the moment, I am predicting the following five films for Best Film Editing:

    Bridge Of Spies
    *Creed
    The Martian
    The Revenant
    Spotlight

    Mad Max is definitely in. Genre bias is less prevalent in this field (Dragon Tattoo’s win). It also has the most editing a la Whiplash.

    Gawd, I hope they don’t nominate Mad Max Fury Road ): My least favorite movie of the year. I’m not as convinced it will get in this category. They often go for BP nominees here and I don’t think (it would be insulting to the great films it would bump) MMFR will get in to BP. I’ve acknowledged that MMFR is going to get six undeserved nominations but this isn’t one of them. (To be honest, I walked out on MMFR at the half way point. It was pointless to continue. The only other movie I walked out on was Sicario with about 20 minutes left. I found I didn’t care what happens next and couldn’t care less about any of the characters).

    Creed has the BEST editing. I don’t think “the most” has anything to do with it. Those boxing sequences were extraordinarily well edited.

    Mad Max has the flashiest editing of the year, if Whiplash could’ve won this category last year, Mad Max is frontrunner for sure.
    The nominees should be:
    -Beasts of No Nation
    -Bridges of Spies
    -Mad Max: Fury Road
    -Sicario
    -Spotlight

    I haven’t seen The Revenant yet, but last year voters proved they wasn’t impressed with long takes (Birdman). They like movies that show off its editing, like war movies, action movies, thrillers, the award tends to go to the most editing, not the best.

    I am shocked that people cannot finish a film or just plain walk out!!!! Picking Creed for an editing nomination is a bit stretching. No way.
    Best Editing nominees …… Spotlight, Steve Jobs, The Martian, Bridge of Spies and Star Wars.

    FreemanGriffin, Creed falls under Adapted Screenplay btw. It has the ‘Characters by Sylvester Stallone’ credit.

    Bridge of Spies
    Creed
    Joy
    The Revenant
    Spotlight

     

    I have Creed winning and if Joy fails I’ll replace it with Mad Max: Fury Road. I’m considering dropping Bridge of Spies for it too.

    I only see Spotlight and The Revenant as locks. I had no idea which movies are going to take the other three spots, Mad Max has great chances but … it’s still a summer action movie, the title could sound kind of “ridiculous” for the Academy, and that can indeed hurt a lot.

    Mad Max is definately in and has many possibilities to win. Mad Max is still the best film of the year.

    Odd to see Spotlight get mentioned here. I liked the film, but I didn’t think the editing was anything special. I would rather Creed get nominated as well. Mad Max: Fury Road definitely deserves a nomination as well, and will likely get one. Same for Sicario.

    Dallas Buyers Club, Lincoln, The Descendants and so on—it is irrelevant how insignificant the editing is if the film is a major Best Picture player.

    I walked out of American Sniper and look what happened….a Sound Editing win.

    Never again.
