Can Birdman win Best Picture without securing that Best Film Editing Oscar nomination? The last time a Best Picture winner was not nominated for Best Film Editing was in 1980 with Ordinary People. This really does concern me. Would love to hear your thoughts!

I can’t credit this thought to myself, but with the extended number of Best Picture nominees, does a lack of a Film Editing nomination really count anymore? It feels like an outdated statistic, and many outdated statistics have been rendered even further obselete in recent years.February 21, 2015 at 7:25 pm #180455
I didn’t think of that kbfr12. You have a point there!February 21, 2015 at 7:29 pm #180456

The biggest problem for Birdman is not the lack of an Editing nomination, but the fact that its only secured win is CinematographyFebruary 21, 2015 at 7:44 pm #180458
I’m sorry GustavoCruzESilva, this was my first forum post ever, so I’m not sure what had already been said and what hasn’t.February 21, 2015 at 7:49 pm #180459

I am personally predicting Redymayne to win best actor but I am so surprised to see more members voting for Michael Keaton in those “secret ballot”. I know the sample size is so small but it shows that he really has a shot at winning. Original screenplay is very probable too
I think birdman will win three, best picture, best cinematography, third one either actor or screenplayFebruary 21, 2015 at 8:22 pm #180460

Be nice, Gustavo! And welcome to GoldDerby, Cole.
I think if ever there was a year that a film could pull off what Ordinary People did (winning Picture without the Editing nom), it’s this year.
What I think is really interesting is how many times a film has won Editing but without winning Picture since 1999.

– 2011*: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for Editing, The Artist for Picture.
