2018 Oscar Predictions: FILM EDITING and CINEMATOGRAPHY (December Part 1)

Dunkirk remains the strong frontrunner for Film Editing (but Get Out is gaining fast) and increases its lead in Cinematography over Blade Runner 2049 just a bit the first half of this month. The Florida Project, Lady Bird and Baby Driver pop up in Film Editing as debuts this month. Very little movement in Cinematography this month; The Post moves up and Phantom Thread is removed from the list as director Paul Thomas Anderson did his own camerawork uncredited and therefore is ineligible for a nomination.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began 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.
