American Cinema Editors Announce 2021 Awards Calendar
American Cinema Editors announced its 2021 awards schedule with the Eddies slated for Sunday, April 18. Presentation details are not yet confirmed.
The organization also added a new category, "animation non-theatrical," which covers animated series or other animated programs that go directly to broadcast or streaming services. A theatrical feature animation category was added to the Eddies lineup in 2010.
