2018 Oscar Predictions –

SOUND MIXING

(UPDATED – JUNE 2, 2017)

It’s always safe to bet on a musical or war film in this category.  “The Greatest Showman” can top the category with the right reviews but anything from “Dunkirk,” “Thank You for Your Service,” or “Detroit” can spoil the party.  And then there’s the action films like “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and “Thor: Ragnarok” that could surprise.
