'12 Years a Slave,' 'Captain Phillips,' 'Gravity' Among ACE Eddie Award Nominees
The editors of 12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Her and Saving Mr. Banks were nominated for American Cinema Editors' Eddie Awards for best edited dramatic film.
Nominees for best edited feature, comedy or musical, are the editors of American Hustle, August: Osage County, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska and The Wolf of Wall Street.
The Eddies have proven to be a reliable Oscar bellwether. In nine of the past 11 ACE Awards, the winner of the best edited dramatic feature category has gone on to win the Oscar in editing. Once in that period, it went to the winner in the comedy or musical category (Chicago).
At seven of the past 11 Eddie Awards shows, the film that won either the dramatic or comedy/musical ACE categories went on to win the Academy Award for best picture. No film has won best picture at the Oscars without also having received at least a best editing nomination from ACE since Ordinary People in 1981.
This year's feature nominees include several past winners of editing Oscars, including Chris Rouse (Captain Phillips), Stephen Mirrione (August: Osage County) and Thelma Schoonmaker (The Wolf of Wall Street).
This year's list also includes Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron, who co-edited his film with Mark Sanger; and the Coen Brothers, who edited their film Inside Llewyn Davis under their moniker Roderick Jaynes.
In the television categories, four separate episodes of Breaking Bad received nominations.
The 64th annual ACE Eddie Awards will be handed out Feb. 7 at the Beverly Hilton.
