[Scott Witthaus] "Whereas Avid seems to be "when the **insert big name director here** came to cut their new film 'Martian 2: On to Venus', they of course chose Media Composer, because all the great films are cut on Media Composer... 90% of all the Academy Award films are cut on Media Composer""

This is a bit of a misnomer. Directors usually don't dictate NLEs. They pick the editor they want and the editor uses the NLE of their choice. However, often that choice is mandated by the studios, because they want an insurance policy. That's where Avid comes in. Aside from reliability, most film editors know it. Editors do sometimes get fired off of films. If you have the film set up on Avid, then it's less of a hassle to bring in another editor. Neither FCPX or Premiere Pro are anywhere near that point.
