The first of the guild awards announced its winners for editing and they are as follows:
- Best Editing in a Feature Film (Drama): Arrival
- Best Editing in a Feature Film (Comedy): La La Land
- Best Editing in Feature Film (Animated): Zootopia
- Best Editing in a Documentary Feature: OJ: Made in America
No real surprises there, although maybe Arrival was the most unexpected, since Drama Feature seemed wide open. But otherwise, La La Land, Zootopia and OJ are all looking like the frontrunners on their way to winning Best Picture, Animated and Documentary at the Oscars.
