The staff editors have talked a lot about Picture, Director and the four acting races, so I gathered Zach Laws, Tony Ruiz and Jeffrey Kare to debate everything else.
Great rundown. Was hoping to tinker with the shorts, but we’re kind of on the same page there. What I do disagree with you about is TSOW in sound categories. I would’ve thought a guild follower like you would have it in both sound by now since it’s done well.
I am thinking that it gets derailed by the passion-vote system; however, I mistakenly hoped and predicted that that would take down The Martian in the sound categories and it was less of a Best Picture player. I do still have The Shape of Water in sound mixing. I suppose that I will remove Logan from sound editing.
