The Descendants, Hugo and The Artist are among the nominees for American Cinema Editors’ 62nd annual Eddie Awards. Additionally, Michael Kahn is a double nominee, recognized for his work on both War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin.

No film has won best picture at the Oscars without also having received at least a best editing Eddie nomination since Ordinary People in 1981.
