I think it's too late for that.

Deadpool had much more exciting editing.

I think you mean "omitted", not "committed", but I thought knee-jerk "blue-hair bait" nominations pretty much went out with Neil Simon. I didn't care for it very much, but I did laugh in a few places, which is more than I can say for that dumbed down version of The Jungle Book.

I didn't make predictions for this guild but the film I'm most surprised to see omitted is Florence Foster Jenkins. We're by no means talking about the second coming of Walter Murch but this kind of blue hair-bait usually manages to elbow in. This is also another minor setback for 20th Century Women.

I'm not surprised by Hell or High Water's showing at all. I think the nominees for Best Film Editing will be Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, La La Land, Moonlight, and either Hell or High Water or Manchester by the Sea. I could make a case for either one. Working against Hell or High Water is that much of it plays out in long shots rather than tight editing. Working against Manchester by the Sea is that flashbacks aside it's very much a written film and various craft elements could get lost.

Lion, which is quickly fading!

So far, we have had Two films get Golden Globe Picture, SAG Ensemble and ACE nods...Manchester and Moonlight. Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water and La La Land, each got 2/3 (as did Deadpool, but I'm counting that out). Those seem like five solid Best Picture nominees to me.

Actually, I could easily argue for Hell or High Water under Editing -- the bank-robbery/action sequences, and the cutting back and forth between the two storylines (Pine/Foster's spree, and Bridges' investigation). That seems to me to meet the parameters of Lots of Editing that this branch often goes for. I'm not saying the film CAN'T be a best picture contender; there are plenty of people buzzing for it. I just don't think this clinches the case. (Same with Hacksaw Ridge, which I presume has battle scenes, long known to be editors' catnip.)

I guess I've become so used to Jackie being omitted that it slipped my mind here. Clearly, the cross-cutting between time-frames could/should have got it attention.

As for Silence: it appears to be dying commercially, which probably excludes it from most consideration beyond decor.

This nomination in the Comedy category is funnier than anything in The Jungle Book.
