    Hey all,

    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 It feels like an outdated statistic, and many outdated statistics have been rendered even further obselete in recent years.

    The biggest problem for Birdman is not the lack of an Editing nomination, but the fact that its only secured win is Cinematography

    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.

    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 screenplay

    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. 

    – 2013: Gravity for Editing, 12 Years a Slave for Picture.
    – 2011*: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for Editing, The Artist for Picture.
    – 2010: The Social Network for Editing, The King’s Speech for Picture.
    – 2007*: The Bourne Ultimatum for Editing, No Country for Old Men for Picture. 
    – 2004**: The Aviator for Editing, Million Dollar Baby for Picture. 
    – 2001*: Black Hawk Down for Editing, A Beautiful Mind for Picture
    – 2000: Traffic for Editing, Gladiator for Picture.
    – 1999*: The Matrix for Editing, American Beauty for Picture.

    *2011, 2007, 2001, and 1999 – Editing winners had no nomination for Picture.

    **2004 – Picture winner had no nomination for Editing. 

    Picture & Editing wins
    – 2012: Argo 
    – 2009: The Hurt Locker
    – 2008: Slumdog Millionaire
    – 2006: The Departed
    – 2005: Crash 
    – 2003: LOTR: The Return of the King 
    – 2002: Chicago
