  1. I think Super 8 and Hugo are the only locks of the category. Do you think The Artist has any chance at a surprise nomination in this category?

    1. Ryan, I do think that The Artist has a decent chance here. There is that one "nightmare" scene, in particular, plus the way they did the ending. Best Picture nominees often get some love here (more so than in sound editing). I've currently got it at number 10, and it did get a BAFTA nomination. If it had gotten some attention from either CAS or MPSE, I would have put it into the top 5 for sure.

  2. Thanks guys, for sharing such informative data.
