CONCLUSION – Inception, Tron: Legacy
1 – Statitics
63% of the time Golden Reel and Oscar Sound Edit match.
Last 4 years in a row Golden Reel and Oscar Sound Edit match.
Golden Reel has matched Oscar Best Picture only 2 times.
            – 2000 – Gladiator
            – 1995 – Braveheart
CONCLUSION – All but The Social Network and The King’s Speech
2 – Precursors
Not many awards organizations have awarded films for sound this year but Inception has won all of those that did.
CONCLUSION – Inception
3 – Genre
Very rarely does a non-action, thriller, war, musical, crime, period, epic film win this award.  In the last 17 years, Titanic is the only Golden Reel winner not in those genres.  It is considered “Romance”.  However, it did also win Best Picture.
4 – Other Thoughts
Sound Edit has only matched Best Picture twice with Titanic (1997) and Braveheart (1995).  Both films were epic films with a more solid story line.
       2008     Slumdog Millionaire – Drama
       1997     Titanic – Romance
       1996    The English Patient – Romance
