Does anyone have the statistics regarding how likely a film is going to win BP without getting an ACE nod ? Yes, the first thing that popped into my mind was “Selma missed!” despite its category having 6 nominees.January 2, 2015 at 6:44 am #170954
Since 1990, ( over 25 years), no film has won Best Picture at the Oscars without an Ace Eddie Award nomination.
Before then, Driving Miss Daisy won Best Picture in 1989 (but we all know how that came about).
If you go back further it happend a little frequently – Terms of Endearment, Chariots of Fire.)January 2, 2015 at 8:33 am #170955
Wow thanks for the quick reply and the info.
I’d have to stick with the statistics then for now and pull Selma downward a little. I guess we’re all still predicting it as a nominee, but it probably won’t win and not — like a lot of us were saying — a “genuine threat” to Boyhood, since I just don’t feel it’s the film that’s so special that it’s going to break that pattern and win the Oscar without the ACE nod.
Of course, I’ve also never thought that Birdman could beat Boyhood because of the nature of the film and I doubt it has widespread support beyond the actors branch.
So if the analysis above holds, is Boyhood’s true Oscar threat going to be…The Imitation Game?…(though it doesn’t feel like it could win either…but it’s Harvey so you never know, I guess)January 2, 2015 at 8:47 am #170956
I’m guessing Nightcrawler and American Sniper were the tie for fifth? The lack of Selma is weird, considering it is actually very impressively edited — I guess it could have been more tightly cut in places, but in general the scenes of editing I’m remembering (in particular the Bloody Sunday sequence) were really powerfully presented.January 2, 2015 at 9:00 am #170957
If Whiplash misses a nomination at the Oscars, it will be a crime. Thankfully the Eddies recognized its quality. I think that Boyhood and Birdman will win their respective categories here, then face off at the Oscars.January 2, 2015 at 9:09 am #170958
Selma will show up as a nominee for editing at the Oscars if buzz is any indication. Dallas Buyers Club missed last year so this isn’t completely set in stone.January 2, 2015 at 9:59 am #170959
Selma will show up as a nominee for editing at the Oscars if buzz is any indication. Dallas Buyers Club missed last year so this isn’t completely set in stone.
I wouldn’t be so quick to say that. ACE has essentially said there are at least six films that were edited better than Selma. Plus Birdman and Grand Budapest from the other category. I wouldn’t rule it out all together, but its gonna be uphillJanuary 2, 2015 at 11:02 am #170960
Whiplash! Whiplash! Whiplash!January 2, 2015 at 11:35 am #170961
Whiplash! Whiplash! Whiplash!
You’re joking, right? Over INTERSTELLAR? And that’s what this category is going to be remembered for. What the F are the Eddies voters thinking? An arthouse film getting a nod over Lee Smith? The MTV Movie Awards will have more legitimacy and standing with the general public than the Indie Spirits II that the Oscars are going to turn out as. This is a f’n joke.
