    So far, the BFCA are the only big organization to have nominees for film editing.

    They are:
    The Artist
    Drive
    Hugo
    The Tree of Life
    War Horse

    The ACE Eddie Award nominations are announced on the 16th of January, with the awards ceremony on February 18th.

    YES! Finally a thread with no acting talk nonsense!

    I have yet to watch “The Artist” and “Hugo”, as they still haven’t opened here in Brazil. But from the 3 I’ve seen, I’d choose “The Tree Of Life”, but only slightly in front of “Drive”, which I thought was incredible. Don’t know what the hell “War Horse” is doing here, it was a competent job, but it’s not one of the film strengths, and there were many other more interesting works in editing this year.

    I love Editing. It’s my speciality of choice right now, being in film school and all.

    Tree of Life is my favorite of the editing contenders and I really hope it get an Oscar nom. I wish Martha Marcy May Marlene got more precursor support. Loved how it was put together. Crap Horse was fine but has no business being in the conversation. And considering how badly the film has done with the guilds, I doubt it makes it in with ACE.

    These nominations are my Oscar predictions, except there’s a chance one of them will be replaced by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    ^^^A chance? Drive will definately be replaced TGWTDT. War Horse could possibly be replaced by Moneyball or TTSS.

    Anxious to see the Eddie noms. Hope they expand out and nominate something outside of the ‘yups’, such as Super 8 and Harry Potter.

    I know people think “Drive” won’t get nominated for anything after being constantly snubbed by the guilds, but remember: this isn’t producers or directors. These are editors. It’s entirely possible for a film like “Drive” to do well here. In fact, I think it’s a film that can even do better with editors more than “Tree of Life”.

    And I don’t know if “The Girl With Dragon Tattoo” will (or should) get nominated. Either way, this category is very competitive this year.

    Not so sure that it’s as definite as you’re making it sound. When I talk to friends about Drive, they cite the editing as being one of its strongest qualities. I’ve yet to see it, but from what I’m told, its inclusion here would not be unwarranted.

    Still, Dragon Tattoo had some sequences with so many cuts that the voters will probably take a great deal of notice. Oddly enough, it’s the editing of The Artist that I hear is nothing spectacular. I have no opinion on that myself, though.

    Yeah, this “definitely” thing regarding a “Drive” snub in Editing is very radical. This is one of the tech categories where it has the best shot of getting nominated (along with the two Sound ones). And it’s very much a movie that appeals to editors, like I said before.

     I don’t understand how anyone be can so sure that a film like this will be easily snub in here.

    I think the Oscar nominees will end up being The Artist, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Moneyball and War Horse.

    I agree with these five as the most likely Oscar nominees but hope the Oscar voters do the right thing and have “Drive” replace “War Horse”. Or even “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” replace it… the whole thing is beautifullye edited but the last few minutes are a little masterpiece of the craft.

    Drive and The Tree of Life should have been in over Moneyball and War Horse.

    I have not seen the other three.

    Again with this “War Horse” editing nomination? It’s not simple and it’s not subtle, and it’s not creative, and it’s not particularly interesting. I really hope it’s not nominated, considering one or two of the Comedy nominees will get in the Oscars (“the Artist” for sure, but “Midnight In Paris” could surprise and sneak in too)

    “Moneyball” can stay. It’s TGWTDT that feels like every other music video inspired film editing ever done before. I like the film, and like the editing, but there’s nothing really remarkable about it, it’s just well executed.

    But I agree “Tree Of Life” and “Drive” had far, very, very far superior editing work to be snubbed in favor of “War Horse”.
