Best Sound Editing

Sound editing focuses on the creation of the sounds you hear in the film. It’s the dialogue, nature, gun shots, and everything else that isn’t music/score. Star Wars seems like a given this year, with space battles and the communication with BB-8, but any of the others could easily get a surprise win. The Revenant is nature heavy, and beautifully laid with natural sounds replacing music in many intense scenes. It also had Western shootouts and bear attacks that were brutal.
