ACE Eddie Awards for best editing announced – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: The American Cinema Editors announced their nominations for the 62nd Annual ACE Eddie Awards Monday morning, recognizing outstanding editing in nine categories of film, television and documentaries.

Like the Golden Globes, the editors divide their films between “Dramatic” and “Comedic” categories, so its tough to peg how (or if) they play into the five Oscar nomination slots. At the very least, you can guess that the Academy’s five nominees will come from the five features listed below.

Winners will be revealed during ACE’s 62nd annual black-tie awards ceremony on Saturday, February 18, 2012 in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. As previously announced, the ceremony will be hosted by actor/comedian Patton Oswalt. Later this month ACE will announce the Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year honoree and two Career Achievement honorees.
