Oscars: Sound Editing Versus Sound Mixing

Instead of going into detail on each film and their chances (or lack thereof) as far as the sound goes, I thought it would be more beneficial to broach the topic of what the differences are between the Best Sound Editing category and Best Sound Mixing category, since I have to refresh my own memory most years when the Oscars roll around.
