‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Modern Family’ make the cut with Eddies

Newcomer “The Walking Dead” won Best Edited One Hour Commercial TV Series at the 61st edition of the American Cinema Editors awards on Saturday night. It edged out last year’s champ “Breaking Bad” as well as “Friday Night Lights,” “Glee” and “The Good Wife.” On the non-commercial side, “Treme” trumped “Boardwalk Empire” and “Dexter.”

While the Eddies acknowledge the different pacing demands of commercial one-hour series, they don’t do the same for half hours. In that race, ABC’s “Modern Family” prevailed over Showtime’s “The Big C” and “Nurse Jackie.”

“Temple Grandin” won the TV Movie/Mini race over “The Pacific” and “You Don’t Know Jack” as it had done at last year’s Emmys

And “If You Really Knew Me” took the Reality prize over “The Deadliest Catch” and “Whale Wars 3.”
