‘No Time to Die,’ ‘Belfast,’ ‘King Richard’ Make the Cut in ACE Eddie Nominations

The American Cinema Editors also singled out ”Dune,“ ”The Power of the Dog“ and ”Don’t Look Up,“ among others

AWARDS BEAT

“Belfast,” “Dune,” “King Richard,” “No Time to Die” and “The Power of the Dog” have been nominated as the best dramatic film editing of 2021 by the American Cinema Editors, which announced the nominees for the 72nd annual ACE Eddie Awards on Thursday.

Those five films will compete in the Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic) category, while the field in Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy) will consist of “Cruella,” “Don’t Look Up,” “The French Dispatch,” “Licorice Pizza” and “tick, tick…BOOM!”

The most surprising omission was probably “West Side Story,” while ACE Eddie voters also bypassed “Nightmare Alley,” “CODA” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

Nominations for the editing of animated features went to the same five animated films that have also been nominated by the Cinema Audio Society, Motion Picture Sound Editors, Visual Effects Society and Art Directors Guild: “Encanto,” “Luca,” “The Mitchells vs. the Machines,” “Raya and the Last Dragon” and “Sing 2.”

In the television categories, “Kevin Can F**k Himself” received three nominations to sweep the Best Edited Multi-Camera Comedy Series category, while “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Ted Lasso,” “Succession,” “Mare of Easttown” and “The White Lotus” each received two.

The nominations were announced on a day that will also see nomination announcements from the Producers Guild, Directors Guild and Writers Guild, capping a wild four-day blitz in which 10 different guilds or professional societies announced their nominations.

Over the past decade, 90% of the Oscar nominees for Best Film Editing have first been nominated by the American Cinema Editors, with Oscar nominees heavily weighted toward the ACE drama category. For the last 30 years, the correlation between an ACE Eddie nomination and a Best Picture win is even more pronounced, with 28 of the Oscar winners over that time first being nominated by ACE.  

The winners will be announced on Saturday, March 5, in an in-person ceremony at the ACE Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The awards are planned as a 50% capacity event that will follow all COVID safety protocols.

As previously announced, the ceremony will also include the presentation of the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award to the Sundance Institute and Career Achievement Awards to editors Lillian E. Benson and Richard Chew.
