“Moonlight” continues its award-winning spree, topping the 10th annual Alliance of Women Film Journalists Eda Awards and winning Best Film, Director and Adapted Screenplay, among others.
The Awfj awards, named Eda after Awjf founder Jennifer Merin’s mother, actress Eda Reiss Merin, are divided into three sections: the standard “Best Of” section, the Female Focus awards and the irreverent Eda Special Mention awards.
Barry Jenkins’ critically acclaimed drama garnered a total of seven EDAs, with Ava Duvernay also awarded three trophies for Best Documentary, Best Female Director and Outstanding Achievement by a Woman in the Film Industry for “13th.” Oscar favorite “Manchester by the Sea” won two EDAs for Best Actor for Casey Affleck and Original Screenplay.

The Alliance of Women Film Journalists has announced the nominees for their 2015 Eda Awards recognizing the amazing work done by and about women -- both in front and behind the camera. According to their site, "the EDAs are named in honor of Awfj founder Jennifer Merin.s mother, Eda Reiss Merin, a stage, film and television actress whose career spanned more than 60 years. A dedicated foot soldier in the industry, Eda was one of the founders of AFTRA and a long-standing Member of AMPAS."
I wish I can vote for the Eda Awards because their Special Mention Awards are just too darn fun with categories like "Best Nudity," and "Actress Most In Need of a New Agent!"
