2019 ACE Eddie Awards: Full list of nominations led by Best Picture Oscar frontrunners

Nominations for the 69th annual edition of the ACE Eddie Awards bestowed by the American Cinema Editors were announced on Monday (Jan. 7). Our top five frontrunners for Best Picture at the Oscars — “A Star is Born,” “BlacKklansman,” “Green Book,” “The Favourite” and “Roma” — number among the 10 feature films in contention here as do several of their lower ranked rivals. Scroll down to see the full list of nominations.

The nearly 1,000 members of ACE will get their final ballots on Jan. 11 and have until Jan. 21 to complete them. These kudos, honoring the best cutting in film and television, will be handed out on Feb. 1 in a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton. (Read our full report on the ACE Eddie Awards nominations.)

In 1992, the Eddies went from three to five nominees (matching that of the Oscars) and in 2000 it split the award in two, with five nominees for each of drama and comedy/musical. Over the past 25 years, 115 of the 130 Academy Awards nominees for Best Film Editing had first reaped an Eddie bid; that is an accuracy rate of 88%.
