Unexpected Oscar musts

Blades of Glory needs to win Best Costumes
Hot Fuzz needs to win for Editing and Sound Editing

What did I miss?

They’ll never actually give it to it (because of it’s less-than-austere origins), but Transformers has easily had the best VFX this year thus far.

I would give Grindhouse editing over HF (though the latter’s a better film).

And, alas, “Spider-Pig” isn’t eligible for Best Song.

I thought the Original Score for Stardust was really really good. I also liked the score for 3:10 to Yuma. If either one of those get nominated, I’ll be satisfied.

I also fully expect Ratatouille to get nominated and win the Animation Oscar.
