2018 Oscar Predictions: FILM EDITING and CINEMATOGRAPHY (November)

Dunkirk stays locked onto the #1 spot in Film Editing once again. This is always an interesting category because the winner usually falls into one of two (or sometimes both) categories: a major action film or the Best Picture winner. At them moment, Dunkirk hits both of those. It’s a category that has also often favored longer films (2 hours or more) that have ‘more’ editing but recent winners like Gravity and Whiplash have defied that. Dunkirk comes in at 1h 46m, which would put it between those two. This month, Get Out sees a very healthy bump from #5 to #3, which pushes The Post and Blade Runner 2049 down a bit. Call Me By Your Name and I, Tonya rise this month.

Cinematography is turning into a very tight race. For so long we looked at Blade Runner 2049 and thought ‘ok, is THIS the movie that will finally win Roger Deakins the Oscar?’ and indeed, he had been in front every month since predictions started in late Spring/early Summer. This month though, Dunkirk takes over but only by a single point. With its use of multiple aspect ratios, cameras and heavy IMAX content, Dunkirk could run away with this. But don’t count out The Shape of Water if that film starts to move towards Best Picture frontrunner status. Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth won this award back 2007.

These are the official 2018 Oscar Predictions in Film Editing and Cinematography for November from the Gold Rush Gang. Keep an eye on all of the Gold Rush Gang’s 2018 Oscar predictions updated LIVE throughout the month.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
