Blade Runner 2049, The Shape of Water score ACE Eddie Awards nominations

Posted on

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Steven Spielberg’s The Post, and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk continue to garner recognition with the unveiling of nominees for the 68th annual ACE Eddie Awards. But with the foreseeable standouts also come works like Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 and Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, films with less awards season accolades to their name.

Editors across film and television were recognized by the American Cinema Editors in the list of nominations announced Wednesday. With the film nominees, Molly’s Game and Dunkirk help round out the dramatic category, while comedy contenders includes Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, and Get Out.

Jordan Peele’s directorial film debut was also nominated for a Golden Globe in the comedy film category, a decision that sparked some backlash and criticism.

On the TV side of the Eddie Awards, standouts include HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, AMC’s Better Call Saul, and FX’s Fargo, all of which received two nominations in their respective categories. The home box office network continued to dominate with nominations for Big Little Lies, Game of Thrones, The Wizard of Lies, and Veep.

The network’s VICE News Tonight was also nominated for its cinematic exposé on the rally of white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The winners of the ACE Eddie Awards will be announced during a ceremony held on Jan. 26. See the full list of nominations below.
