I correctly predicted 3 out of 5 of the eventual nominees (60%), but my previously predicted winner (Super 8) didn’t even make the list.
I’m rearranging my predictions in this category for two big reasons: First, I don’t see Transformers actually winning this award, so while it logically might have moved into the open number one spot left by Super 8, I’m instead moving War Horse into that spot, given its best picture nomination. (I think Hugo will be rewarded elsewhere.) The second change is that this category represents the only nomination for Drive, and so I am moving it ahead slightly, because there is a possibility that fans within the Academy could team up to assure that this receives a win. I’m only moving it ahead slightly though (to third place), since that same group of fans couldn’t get it together enough to garner more than this single nomination.
1 Richard Hymns and Gary Rydstrom for War Horse (Predicted Winner) (previous rank 3)
2. Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahi for Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (previous rank 2)
3. Lon Bender and Victor Ray Ennis for Drive (previous rank 8)
4. Phillip Stockton and Eugene Gearty for Hugo (previous rank 4)
5. Ren Klyce for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (previous rank 11)
