The American Cinema Editors (ACE) Eddie Awards honors outstanding editing in film and television. The 61st Annual ACE Eddie Awards nominees recognized the following five films and their editors/editor teams for the Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic) of the year—though they should come as no surprise: Black Swan (Andrew Weisblum, A.C.E.), The Fighter (Pamela Martin), Inception (Lee Smith, A.C.E.), The King’s Speech (Tariq Anwar), and The Social Network (Angus Wall, A.C.E. and Kirk Baxter).
For Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy/Musical), the nominees are Alice in Wonderland (Chris Lebenzon, A.C.E.), Easy A (Susan Littenberg), The Kids Are All Right (Jeffrey M. Werner), Made in Dagenham (Michael Parker), and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Jonathan Amos and Paul Machliss).
The Best Edited Animated Feature Film nominees are Despicable Me (Gregory Perler and Pam Ziegenhagen), How to Train Your Dragon (Maryann Brandon, A.C.E. and Darren T. Holmes, A.C.E.), and Toy Story 3 (Ken Schretzmann and Lee Unkrich, A.C.E.).
The winners will be announced in a ceremony on Feb. 19 at the Beverly Hilton.
