    Really kicking myself in the shin for forgoing the couple of opportunities I’ve had to see Nomadland. Although one was a drive-in which was pretty far away. And the other one was the Lincoln virtual run which sold out in like two picoseconds.

    Here’s a link.

    The thing that’s throwing me on Sound and Editing is that these two have been paired together every year since 2012.

    The Editing win is heavily tied with a Sound nomination. The last Editing winner to not be nominated for Sound was The Departed, and it also happened with Crash one year before. But both were BP winners. The last non BP winner to win Editing without a Sound nomination was Witness in 1985. Even if the two categories are now merged, I don’t think that stat would’ve changed.

    I’ve just watched Soul and it’s definitely deserving of a Best Picture nom. Can it get it? The road might not be easy but I think it’s possible, even if it’s not as universally approved as Inside Out. Passion can lead to it, which outside of campaign is what it takes to get there.

    I’d say that the sound editing in Sound of Metal is way more impressive than the sound mixing.

    I haven’t seen The Father and this isn’t a dig or anything like that lol but does The Father have particularly flashy/impressive editing that the academy will notice?

    Side note too but it’s now 2021 here so happy New Years everyone! So many movies I can say are this year now!

    More chaotic than a soderbergh Oscars

    I have not seen The Father either, but particularly its editing has been singled out, so I think it can def get nominated. As for the win, I think it’ll be Chicago 7, as it falls in line with some past winners.

    The Father does have flashy editing yes. Specifically in one particular scene (it is not the film any one here is expecting!)

    Happy new year Brae!

    Nomadland is the one with better chances from these three, since it’s the BP frontrunner. The Father and Chicago 7 would have to break a 35 years old stat.

    Yes but the point still stands. There is an easy alternative to Mank in Editing.

    We are really going to third year in a row with a foreign language film nominated for Best Picture, right? It seems too good to be true.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I never really thought Nomadland would win Best Pic. It seems destined to be a film that probably is the most lauded critically and will continue to be on Best of… lists for years to come from major cinephile publications and probably my personal favorite film of the year, but lose Best Pic for something more “entertaining” for general audiences’ tastes and more up the Academy’s speed.

    However, Moonlight ended up surprisingly winning, so anything can happen.
