“Whiplash” may have been an extraordinary rare indie-sized winner in this category last year, but that’s not going to be the case this year. With four big-budget spectacles competing for the prize, plus one assured Spielberg drama that might sneak in for the win, this is one of the most exciting and unpredictable categories this year.

Below is Anne Thompson’s take on how things might shake down in the race for best sound mixing. Check out Thompson on Hollywood’s Oscar predictions page for more awards season analysis. Click here for more category breakdowns on Indiewire.

“Bridge of Spies”

Predicted Winner: “The Revenant”
Potential Spoiler: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

WINNER: “Mad Max: Fury Road”
