The guild-award nominations are coming fast and furious, with the Association of Cinema Editors announcing their Eddie award nominees. Last year, the five Eddie nominees in the dramatic category went to score Oscar nods for editing (and four of the five were also nominated for Best Picture). This year ACE added an animated-film category. Meanwhile, you’ll notice that three of the five comedic nominees are films that jump back and forth in time, which is always enticing for the editing branch. Here are the nominees:

Dramatic Film


District 9

The Hurt Locker

Star Trek

Up in the Air

Comedic or Musical Film

(500) Days of Summer

The Hangover

It’s Complicated

Julie & Julia

A Serious Man
