What Makes Oscar Worthy Editing? (from Oscar nominated editors)
What makes an edit truly Oscar worthy? Like many other crafts, it could be seen as subjective and difficult to discern because of the many factors at play (how good was the coverage, how good were the performances, what other factors were outside the editor's control, etc). But there is one thing that you can look for, or in this case, NOT look for, when looking at good editing. Oscar winning editors William Goldenberg, Joel Cox and Gary Roach explain the difference between good editing and bad editing.
