Film editing is a key nomination at the Oscars which usually helps clear up the Best Picture race, but it doesn't look like it's going to be that helpful this year. Everyone is nominating the same five movies! Argh! I'm all for credit where credit is due, but would it kill them to have a bit of variety?
