“Parasite” and “Jojo Rabbit” have won the top feature-film awards at the American Cinema Editors’ 70th Annual ACE Eddie Awards, which were handed out on Friday night in Beverly Hills.
Both winners are nominated for the film-editing Oscar, along with “Ford v Ferrari,” “The Irishman” and “Joker.” Although those three films are more typical editing winners, “Parasite” beat them all in the Best Edited Feature Film (Drama) category, while “Jojo Rabbit” topped “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” for Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy).
The win for “Parasite” was only the second ACE Eddie win in history for a non-English film. In 2007, “Babel” (which, unlike “Parasite,” included portions in English) tied with “The Departed” for the award.
Over the last 10 years, six of the ACE Eddie winners for dramatic film have gone on to win the Oscar for Best Film Editing, but only two have won Best Picture.
“Toy Story 4” won the prize for animated film, while “Apollo 11” and “What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali” won in the feature and non-theatrical documentary categories, respectively.
Television awards went to episodes of “Better Things,” “Fleabag,” “Killing Eve,” “Game of Thrones,” “Chernobyl” and “VICE Investigates.”
Also at the ceremony, producer Lauren Shuler Donner received the ACE Golden Eddie Award, while editors Alan Heim and Tina Hirsch received Career Achievement Awards and Cathy Repola was given the ACE Heritage Award.
The show took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
