Will Win - The Artist
Should Win - Moneyball
Could Win - The Descendants or Hugo
Commentary - The Eddies threw a curveball with the selection of The Descendants for Editing of a Drama film. Many expected it to be Hugo. What this means is that, while you can't count out the great Thelma Schoonmaker, most likely The Artist will win the prize. I just don't see something as subtle and untechnical as The Descendants taking home the prize, although the Eddie win boosts its Best Picture surprise chances, and more importantly, its chances in Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor. With Hugo looking weak in editing, and The Descendants being untechnical, I think The Artist will benefit and take the prize.
