Last night's nominees were:
Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic):
The winners were Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, Brave, and Searching for Sugar Man. The next question does this help in predicting, or guessing what will happen next at the Oscars? The answer unfortunately is not really.
In the feature film category both Argo, and Silver Linings Playbook were easily predicted winners here. Argo will most likely win the editing award at the Academy Awards, Zero Dark Thirty was a threat at one point, but Argo's journey to Best Picture is preventing that win. One thing is for certain you may end up hearing "And the Oscar goes to....Argo" or "And the Oscar goes to...Silver Linings Playbook" a lot on February 24th. One of the other interesting elements are the constant standing ovations for Spielberg as he takes the stage. Spielberg won film editor of the year last night. Could Lincoln pull of the same achievement Braveheart did in 1995?
The next interesting category is Best Animated Feature, and while many folks are saying this award is up in the air, which there are many possibilities (except Pirates, and ParaNorman). The race for this award seems to be between Brave, Wreck-It Ralph, and Frankenweenie. I think Brave has a bigger lock on this than people are predicting, at the moment I think Wreck-It Ralph as the best odds, yet Brave keeps winning. At the moment I am going to stick with my gut and say Brave wins.
In another world where no one is concerned with the Oscars....the television winners were as follows:
