ACE Eddie Nominations

The Editor's Guild announced today, which is actually a very important one, because failing to score an Eddie nomination means it's practically impossible to win Best Picture. Editing is one of the most important technical categories next to directing:


Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic)

  • 12 Years a Slave
  • Captain Phillips
  • Gravity
  • Her
  • Saving Mr. Banks

Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy/Musical)

  • American Hustle
  • August: Osage County
  • Inside Llewyn Davis
  • Nebraska
  • The Wolf of Wall Street

Best Edited Documentary

  • 20 Feet From Stardom
  • Blackfish
  • Tim's Vermeer

Based on these nominations I'd say the following movies are safe for a Best Picture nomination: 12 Years, Captain Phillips, Gravity, American Hustle, Nebraska and The Wolf of Wall Street. They've managed to hit just about every guild. I'm sort of stunned by the inclusion of Saving Mr. Banks here, because if there's one thing that movie was it was poorly edited. My guess for the five editing noms at the Oscars are Gravity, Captain Phillips, 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle and Nebraska, essentially the Best Picture heavyweights. Although odd ducks can occasionally get in- I wouldn't be surprised to see Rush score an editing nod, even though it was snubbed by the guild.
