    • What about “Hacksaw Ridge”?

      • Luke McGowan

        Obviously. I hadn’t seen the trailer when I did this.

  • Iso Ns

    (August)
    1. Billy Lynn’s
    2. Sully
    3. Rogue One
    4. Passengers
    5. Arrival

  • Do you ever hear about war drama “Hacksaw Ridge”? It must be strong contender in this category at least.

  • “La La Land” is #4 in sound edting category? Are are fucking serious?

    • Jonathan

      Yeah, I couldn’t see it be nominated for Sound Editing either. They love to reward that genre in Sound Mixing but no musical has ever been nominated for Sound Editing.

      • Agree. I think author overestimates “La La Land” chances and underestimates “Hacksaw Ridge” chances in this category.

        I see 3 big contenders here atm:
        1. Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
        2. Arrival

        5. Hacksaw Ridge

  • 1. Hacksaw Ridge
    2. Eye in the Sky
    3. Arrival
    4. Kubo and the Two Strings
    5. Passengers

    6. Sully
    7. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
    8. Star Trek Beyond
    9. La La Land
    10. The Magnificent Seven

  • Erik Aadahl and Ether Van der Ryn are sound editors on Live by Night. You’re placing them way too low on the list.

  • AndreTheTurtle

    Interesting that you have La La Land winning in Sound Mixing, but not even top five in Sound Editing. Huh.

  • Bryce

    Arrival
    Hacksaw Ridge
    La La Land
    Patriots Day
    Rogue One

    I think Rogue One and Hacksaw Ridge will share the sound Mixing/Editing categories. Rogue One gets Sound Mixing, but the Sound Editing award goes to Hacksaw Ridge

  • Pokermask

    Here are my predictions for Best Sound Editing at the moment:
    Arrival (Sylvain Bellemare)
    Deepwater Horizon (Kris Fenske, Michael Feuser, Sarah Gibble)
    Hacksaw Ridge (Robert Mackenzie)
    La La Land (Ai-Ling Lee, Mildred Iatrou Morgan)
    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Matthew Wood, Christopher Scarabosio)

    Top choice: Hacksaw Ridge
