    The 2014 ACE EDDIE AWARDS will be presented at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on FRIDAY, February 7, 2014

     

    The ACE Eddie Awards is considered an integral precursor to the Oscars®. No film has won Best Picture at the Oscars® without also having received at least a Best Editing nomination since ORDINARY PEOPLE in 1981. Since the ACE membership boasts a very high crossover within its membership of Academy® members, it represents a very accurate bellwether for the eventual Oscar® outcome.

    Over the last 20 years, the (ACE) Eddie Award’s drama winner (including one tie) has gone on to take home the editing Oscar 17 times, while the comedy/musical winner has done so once.

    In those 20 years, the ACE winner has gone on to win Best Picture 13 times.

    I’m gutted 🙁

    In my predictions, my 3 bankers were 20 Feet From Stardom, Frozen AND Captain Phillips.

    But then after much umming and ahhing over the 4th category, I plumped for Wolf Of Wall Street over American Hustle.

    Drat! That might be the closest I ever get to winning a prediction contest, here!

    lol, so if we believe this ACE barometer, does this mean that it’ll be Captain Phillips vs American Hustle for BP? 

    I still think that the Oscars will go for Gravity for Editing, instead of going for Captain Phillips. I think this will happen because I feel the Academy doesn’t really like Captain Phillips (well, at least the Director’s branch + the actors’ branch, which is already like what, ~ 1500/6000 members?)

    Two surprise wins for Captain Phillips this week (WGA & ACE), but my gut tells me that it doesn’t mean much.

    I remember back in 2011 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo beat best picture contenders like The Artist/Hugo/The Descendants for Editing, but that is probably because The Girl with the Dragon Tatto feels like the kind of movie (crime/thriller/mystery) that deserves that award. But this year with both Gravity and Captain Phillips very reasonable choices, I think the Academy will simply go for Gravity since the general support for the film is much stronger.

    By the way, they honored Paul Greengrass tonight with an achievement award. That wouldn’t have contributed to Captain Phillips’ win for the big award, right?

    I think this is very good news for “American Hustle,” and so-so news for “Gravity.” Best Editing could be the one award that Hustle actually wins on Oscar night, while Gravity is still going to win like 5 or 6 Oscars.

    I’m still going with Gravity for the Oscar, followed closely by Captain Phillips. Hustle comes 3rd. The other two have no shot.

    AH won in the non-competitive comedy category.  It doesn’t bode its chance for an editing Oscar.

    The Captain Phillips team had won an editing Oscar for “The Bourne Ultimatum” when that film wasn’t even a BP contender.  So it will still be quite a formidable force at the Oscars for editing.

    Gravity losing ACE is a reality check that people are not necessarily so madly in love with it that they will check it off automatically on their ballots.

    I still think Gravity wins editing at the oscars. Captain Phillips may be better, as editors voted for it, but I think all the above line voters who don’t really get editing will still tick of gravity (not to say that gravity isnt also very good editing)

    ^ Not true.  Academy voters aren’t ignorant to editing.  They awarded non-BP contenders like “Girl with Dragon Tattoo” and “Bourne Ultimatum”.

    But you’re right, Gravity is still a strong contender at the Oscars for editing, but it’s no where near a lock like it was perceived prior to yesterday.

    I currently have AH in second place. I figure that either Gravity or Captain Phillips will be first (currently have Gravity) and the other will be third due to a vote split.
