Before I go a little further, I’ll just ask this: Dallas Buyers Club? Really? The editing is one of the film’s weakest elements. How the heck did that get in there?
Anyways, I figured I’d do a tech category for my next entry in this poll series. For this poll, I’ll do the best editing category in 2013. In my opinion, a golden year for well-edited films. But which film from this lineup would you feel was the most robbed? My pick would be Short Term 12, but how about you folks?March 8, 2016 at 8:49 am #220508
i didn’t remember that “The Wolf of Wall Street” wasn’t nominated for that category !… but i am not very interested in technical categories anyway !…March 8, 2016 at 9:18 am #220509
The juxtapositions in Upstream Color are sort of astonishing. That would be my pick for the win that year. It was runner-up to Gravity for the LA critics editing award.March 8, 2016 at 11:48 am #220510

I’ve got to go with The World’s End.March 8, 2016 at 6:58 pm #220512
“The Wolf of Wall Street”, classic film editing at its best.March 8, 2016 at 9:43 pm #220513
“Dallas Buyers Club” weakest element is “Dallas Buyers Club”. Such a crap film.March 9, 2016 at 1:03 am #220514
Easily Wolf of Wall Street. The movie is a force of nature largely thanks to the editing. It flies by in what feels like one hour, and suddenly you realize it actually lasted three hours. Thelma pulled a big, fat rabbit out of her hat there.March 9, 2016 at 9:02 am #220515
I’d vote for Saving Mr. Banks. That movie was one of the best that year and it got snubbed across the board.March 9, 2016 at 10:30 am #220516
Rush won BAFTA, so it should be here.
The Wolf of Wall Street should have won the Oscar.March 9, 2016 at 11:45 am #220517
The Grandmaster was brilliantly edited. Definitely deserved a nomination. I also really liked the editing work on Upstream Color, Rush, and The Wolf of Wall Street.March 9, 2016 at 2:44 pm #220518
The Wolf of Wall Street should have been nominated, and perhaps it should have won. It has some continuity problems, but everything else works perfectly… just to make a three hour feature be so entertaining and so “smooth” is nothing short of great. Rush is the only other that didn´t make the Oscars and deserved to be there. Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips and American Hustle all were good choices. To me, these six were without a doubt the best edited of 2012.
