This category is pretty much locked up. “Gravity” probably will and deserves to win. Even I, a complete idiot when it comes to sound design, can tell that the sound mixing is something to marvel at.
If I had to pick a spoiler, I would go with “Inside Llewyn Davis”. Music films tend to do well here (“Chicago”, “Ray”, “Dreamgirls”, “Les Miserables”). The only reason I don’t have the winning is because of the film above.

Will Win: “Gravity”
