Ace Eddie Awards Nominations

Stellar times for Star Trek….a Writers Guild nomination, a Producers Guild nomination and now this! But where are those Inglorious Basterds among the editors? One of the most interesting noms among the Ace’s lists is in the Documentary category – This Is It. Almost all but forgotten, except for those full-page Fyc ads of the Jackson rehearsal documentary in Variety. I’d love to see it as the big surprise Best Picture nominee on nomination morning. No film has won the Academy Award for Best Picture without also having received an Ace editing nom since “Ordinary People” in 1981.

60th annual Ace Eddie Awards nominees are….

Feature film (dramatic):

Avatar, Stephen Rivkin, John Refua & James Cameron District 9, Julian Clarke The Hurt Locker, Bob Murawski & Chris Innis Star Trek, Maryann Brandon & Mary Jo Markey Up in the Air, Dana Glauberman

'Avatar,' 'Star Trek' land editing noms
As the nominations were unveiled Tuesday morning for the American Cinema Editors' 60th annual Ace Eddie Awards, this year's awards season is looking more and more like a Hollywood version of Comic-Con.

Just like the Art Directors Guild, the editors organization nominated "Avatar," "District 9" and "Star Trek."

Those three movies will compete for best edited dramatic feature film along with "The Hurt Locker" and "Up in the Air."

Two Meryl Streep vehicles -- "Julie & Julia" and "It's Complicated" -- were nominated in the best comedy or musical category along with "(500) Days of Summer," "The Hangover" and "A Serious Man."

For best animated film, the contenders are "Coraline," "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "Up."

"This Is It," the Michael Jackson documentary, scored a slot in Ace's best documentary race alongside "The Cove" and "Food, Inc."

An honorary society of motion picture editors founded in 1950, Ace's noms usually point toward Oscar victory
