American Cinema Editors Announce 63rd Annual Eddie Award Nominees
The editors of Argo, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty have been nominated for best edited dramatic feature in the 63rd annual ACE Eddie Awards, which will be held Feb.16 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Nominated in the feature category for best edited comedy or musicals are the editors of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Les Miserables, Moonrise Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook and Ted.
William Goldenberg is a double nominee, having edited Argo as well as co-edited Zero Dark Thirty with Dylan Tichenor. On Thursday, the same two films were nominated for Oscars for editing.
ACE also nominated this year’s Oscar nominated editors Tim Squres for Life of Pi, Michael Kahn for Lincoln, and Jay Cassidy and Crispin Struthers for Silver Linings Playbook.
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, six of the nine best picture nominated films have editors that are nominated for ACE Awards. They are Argo, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Lingings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty.
