    Ordinary People (1980) was the last movie to win Best Picture without an editing nomination. Birdman was considered out by some after being snubbed in editing. Now it has won PGA, SAG, and DGA over Boyhood.

     

    Where does Birdman stand now? Is the editing snub still that important?

    Not at all – it would be an issue if it DIDN’T win now 

    This season is insane,crazy, abnormal, strange and absolutely unpredictable. Nothing makes sense anymore, and of course Birdman isn’t really an editing achievement, so it won’t really matter

    I’m also predicting Keaton wins (who am I kidding? I’ve never STOPPED predicting him  )

    If Boyhood wins BAFTA, I’m predicting a Boyhood/Inarritu split at the Oscars which would mean that the editing rule remains. We’ll see in a few hours.

    Funny thing is Boyhood doesn’t have a BAFTA editing nomination.

    And? I’m talking about the Oscars’ editing rule. The Pianist didn’t have an editing nomination and won BAFTA

    Boyhood is probably in third place at the Bafta behind Birdman and The Theory of Everything, maybe fouth if we consider the eleven nominations for The Grand Budapest Hotel.

    Agreed. I don’t think the editing snub is the end all be all that some are making it out to be. That statistic is very telling, to be sure, but in this year for this film with those particular cuts, I don’t think it hurts it as badly as it would’ve ‘Boyhood’ had it have missed.

    And I was just stating how weird it is that the other frontrunner for Best Picture missed at BAFTA.

    Well….this thread just imploded. Someone tried to make a case for Birdman’s lack of editing nom at the Oscars….and was handed Boyhoods lack of an editing nomination at BAFTA’s.

    One film aint winning the BAFTA because of it…..and the other will win the Oscar without it.

    Case closed.

    And how do you know this? The BP prize won’t go to Birdman, and Boyhood. The traditional and emotional Imitation Game will sweep. Case closed.

    With all the precusors “Birdman” has now, and even if I personally consider “Boyhood” a better film, I have changed my predictions.

    It could be silly not to do so, honestly. I predict “Birdman” to win Best Picture, Best Director (it will be nice to see an Ibero-American winning Best Director for a consecutive year) and Cinematogaphy. Film Editing snub doesn’t seem as much as an obstacle right now seeing how “Birdman” is nailing all the precursor.

    However I’m sticking with Redmayne as Best Actor.
