Lol the CCA not noming BR for much is not a shock & they don’t deserve any validation..they hated the movie, had it out for the project from the start & they thought by trashing it to high heavens they could distract & take alot of momentum away from it even before it came out globally…oh how wrong they all were.. Will never get over the critics & haters on here & over social media trashing Rami Malek’s performance & the movie only to see ALL the awards he’s winning & the movie is getting plus the reactions it’s receiving like the other night at @SBIFF ..it’s truly glorious to see how completely useless their words were..
It isnt winning anyway, Vice is.
ACE winner for best editing for a motion picture drama…Bohemian Rhapsody!! Lmao it beat out all those other movies..I can’t breath, film twitter is in meltdown mode once again! It’s winning the Oscar for editing people just deal with it ..& I am now thinking it’s a frontrunner for Best Picture!

I said earlier on this thread that the editing of BR was one of its best elements, which was intended as damning with faint praise. But I admit I’d forgotten about those awful scenes that have been brought up on those Twitter threads. Jesus Christ how many unnecessary cuts were in that one scene of people sitting at a table? Cuts to the most uninteresting and unimportant reaction shots? I remember a couple of visually inspired moments in the movie, but I must have been distracted by its general craptitude to notice just how bad some of the specifics were. (Most of the cinematography is awful too, it has this weird tacky glossy look that’s extremely off-putting.) I feel embarrassed to be honest, and this has encouraged me to be even more obvservant when watching films in the future.
All that said, the editing in BR is bad enough to win, so I’m now predicting it for the BAFTA and Oscar. It’s a musical bio with fast cuts/montages and sound nominations to support it, and has the Brit support to be able to win at BAFTA – that plus Drama Eddie would solidify it. That means BR can easily win 3 Oscars – Actor, Editing and Sound Mixing. Yikes.February 3, 2019 at 6:13 pm #1202760521
I saw Bohemian Rhapsody for a second time today. It definitely deserves to win the Oscar for editing. One of the best-edited scenes is when they’re recording Another One Bites The Dust. This film should also have been nominated for best cinematography. It’s a shame that it wasn’t.February 5, 2019 at 2:29 am #1202761897
since both sound categories existed (1964 – 55 years), the winner of the Oscar for the best editing was AT LEAST nominated for once and for 48 times, and for BOTH of them 18 times; esceptions:
– 2007 The Departed (BP / BD oscar winner)
– 2006 Crash (BP oscar winner)
– 2007 Traffic (BD oscar winner)
– 1986 Witness
– 1985 The Killing Fields
– 1980 All that jazz
– 1970 Z
These are the correlations between best editing and other awards:
– Best Picture; nod: 87%; win: 41%;
– Best Sound Editing; nod: 40%; win: 26%;
– Best Sound Mixing; nod: 87%; win: 54%
The strongest correlation is with BP nod and Best Sound Mixing, and this clearly boosts Bohemian Rhapsody, the only film with a nomination for ediing, sound editing and sound mixing.
These are my predictions for technical awards:
– BEST EDITING:
should win: BlackKklansman (superb stylistic choices);
will win: BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (bleah)
– BEST SOUND EDITING:
should and will win: FIRST MAN
spoiler: A Quiet Place is very creative and it is not oscar-friendly and it does not have other nominations;
– BEST SOUND MIXING:
should win: First Man (but I think the lack of passion will bury him in this category, it is rare to win both without BP nomination, the last was King Kong in 2006 but his only competition was the “less complicated” Walk the Line “)
will win: BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (bleah)
should and will win: Shallow (and this will be his only recognition)
“Mary Poppins Returns” is very good but the film is a sequel and the soundtrack is a good remake (only TLOTR and Godfather 2 won for a sequel in this category), “Isle of Dogs” does not seem oscar-friendly and Desplat has won in 2015 and 2018; “BlackKklansman” has only a recurring theme but it is not the backbone of the film and Blanchard is not such a beloved name. it’s between Britell and Goransson, and I think this is the only place to reward Black Panther, which has benefited from the high number of nominations and the success of the score (millions of YouTube and Grammy nominations)February 5, 2019 at 3:23 am #1202761944This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 5, 2019 at 4:55 am #1202762026
Beale Street could totally win all three categories it’s nominated in though.February 5, 2019 at 5:58 am #1202762058This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 5, 2019 at 6:06 am #1202762061
Beale street is very likely in score and supporting. And I don’t see Klansman winning for a script that starts off with ‘this is based on some fo’ real fo’ real shit’ over the script of Beale Street, so yea, it could definitely go 3 for 3.February 5, 2019 at 6:25 am #1202762073This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 11, 2019 at 11:00 am #1202812560This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 11, 2019 at 11:45 am #1202812592This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
