2012 Oscar Predictions: Motion Picture Sound Editors Announce their Nominees

Another shot in the dark with these noms

Okay, so the 2012 nominations from the Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) weren't as helpful as I thought they would be as they have several categories and several nominees in each. So when predicting Best Sound Editing it is essentially a crap shoot though I was happy to see most of the contenders I had in my database before this did earn nominations.

In an effort to keep this short and simple, my #1 pick goes to Ben Burtt's work on Super 8 followed in order by Hugo, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin. Yeah, that sounds good enough to me and you can browse my seven other contenders in the category at my official Oscar predictions page right here.

Otherwise, the MPSE will announce their winners on February 19, five days before the Oscars and just in time to help us predict the winner. I've included all of their film nominees and you can check out their television nominees by using the navigation on the right of their official site right here.

    I was disappointed to not see Harry Potter in this category.

    It's safe to say that Harry Potter And the Deathly Hallows Part 2 got snubbed.
