Oscars 2017 – Best Film Editing

Film editing is a post production process focused on how each shot in a film is cut together to create the scenes. This is important to create a cohesive final product and provide the pacing the script and director desires for the film. Furthermore, the actor’s performance can be dictated by the choice of shots used and how they are put together which can make or break a performance.

Our predictions and analysis are below:

Every film to win Best Picture has been nominated in this category since 1981, with 17 of 34 winning both. The ACE Eddies (American Cinema Editors) saw Arrival winning in drama against Moonlight with La La Land picking up in comedy. Noticeably absent amongst top contenders is Moonlight by the Sea.

  • “La La Land”
  • “Moonlight”
  • “Arrival”
  • “Hacksaw Ridge”
  • “Hell or High Water”
