Like most technical categories this year, it looks like Gravity is going to take the award easily. However, I feel as if this is also a category that they may use to award a Best Picture nominee that might not win in any other categories.
Dallas Buyers Club has Jared Leto as a lock in the Best Supporting Actor category, 12 Years a Slave looks like it will win Best Picture. That leaves American Hustle and Captain Phillips. In this category, the film with the most editing wins and this year that film is Captain Phillips. It also helps a lot that they recently upset at the ACE Eddie Awards.
Check out my predictions below and all of my Oscar predictions here!
Will Win: Captain Phillips
Could Win: Gravity
Should Win: Captain Phillips
Should Have Been Nominated: Her (The speed of the story is so well complimented by the editing. Not to mention the gorgeous montages throughout the film.)
