    This is the hardest category to predict. It go to any of the 4 BP nominated films. Three jazzier editing jobs vs. 2 more subtle editing jobs.

    In 5th place, Mad Max: Fury Road. I know: it could actually win in this category, which I think would mean that TBS or S won’t win BP ): So I sure hope not! I really hated  the editing rhythms of this movie. Just hated it. F.

    In 4th place, The Revenant. The subtle editing was fine, scenes flowed o.k., but I just didn’t care for the movie as a whole. I found myself wanting the movie to end which is never a good sign. It’s not bad editing, it’s just not great editing.

    In 3rd place, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Exciting editing, jazzy cuts, enjoyable and entertaining – but not Oscar-worthy.

    In 2nd place, the subtle editing that contributes to the natural flow of the superb Spotlight.  Spotlight vs. The Big Short reminds me of last year’s Boyhood vs. Whiplash – flashier editing tends to win.

    in 1st place, The Big Short. Flashy, energetic editing that enhances the film’s meanings and makes the movie more enjoyable and entertaining. I think if TBS wins here it will win BP, which is what I want to see happening. I am predicting The Big Short to win.

    Margaret Sixel is Winning this. Mad Max Fury Road was a masterpiece. she cut through 480 hours of film into 2 hours, that alone is award winning.

    I doubt any film is going to upset Mad Max in Editing. 

    But if any does, it’ll be Spotlight. Yes I know, doesnt seem likely. But there it is.

    Part of me thinks Spotlight, just because of the old Best Picture = Best Editing rule, but that thankfully doesn’t seem to be the case quite as often anymore, so hopefully Mad Max can pull it off. Big Short winning wouldn’t bother me either.

    Fury Road is EASILY winning this. EASILY.

    If anything upsets it’ll be The Revenant or Star Wars. Spotlight may have gotten the nom here, but without the ACE it’ll be difficult to win. I’ll have to see how many films won here without it.

    Mad Max will win this and it would be extremely deserved. The Big Short has a shot too. 

    The others not to so much.

    Even if The Big Short wins picture, I find it hard to believe that it wins here over Mad Max.  Voters really seem to be looking at the category in recent years and actually putting some thought into which nominee had the most editing.

    Just checked and it’s only Z and West Side Story. Z probably wasn’t even eligible being a foreign language film.

    Bye Spotlight.

    Yes, I made that check and it’s only Z and West Side Story, but it’s not a done deal.
    It’s like saying: Sorry, Birdman, no editing nomination. Bye bye in picture!
    Sorry, Marcia Gay Harden! You have no SAG nomination. Bye bye!
    Sorry, Driving Miss Daisy! Last time a film won without a directing nomination, your leading lady was in her 20’s.
    Sorry, Shakespeare In Love! No film with both the PGA, the DGA and the Eddie has ever lost.
    Sorry, The Departed! The last time a film with only 5 nods won was 30 years ago.
    Sorry, Denzel! Nobody ever won Globe, SAG and BAFTA and lost.
    Sorry, Crash! No film without a Globe nod has won in three decades. And before that… has there ever been one?

    You get my point.
    The race is crazy and the question is whether voters (many voters) are likely to vote for Mad Max: Fury Road in so many categories. Maybe they’ll spread the wealth and Spotlight is certainly a film with a great work by its editor.

    It’ll definitely go to Mad Max and it’ll definitely be deserved. 

    Good set of nominees.
