We are now into the final phase of this year’s awards season. The ACE Eddie Awards gave out their prizes on Feb. 1 and we only have three more precursors (the DGAs, BAFTAs, and WGAs) left before Academy Awards voting ends on Feb. 20
The editors’ guild gave gongs last night to two films that are also nominated for Best Editing at the Oscars. John Ottman won for “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the drama category while Yorgos Mavropsaridis won over on the comedy side for “The Favourite.” Let’s take a look at what that means for this year’s 35 boxes league table which catalogues key events on the road to the Oscars.
With this win Yorgos Lanthimos‘ “The Favourite” moves up from fourth to a tie for third on 18 boxes ticked.”Vice” is currently predicted to claim Best Film Editing at the Oscars but with its loss here it stays at 18 boxes.
Both films are one behind “BlacKkKlansman,” which missed out on the drama editing award, and four behind “Green Book,” which lost the comedy editing race.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” stays in the same position (seventh) but moves up to 14 boxes ticked – only two behind Best Picture favorite, Alfonso Cuaron‘s “Roma.”
“The Favourite,” which beat Adam McKay‘s movie at the Eddies is currently in third place in editing Oscar odds chart. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” meanwhile, sits in fourth place on that chart. It won the Eddie over, among others, second-ranked “BlacKkKlansman.” Our Oscar odds chart may see some reshuffling in the aftermath of the ACE Eddies awards.
It’s the DGA Awards on Feb. 2, where Bradley Cooper (“A Star is Born”) and Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) will be hoping they can shock pundits by prevailing over the overwhelming favorite Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”) to the top prize. For now, though, here’s the league table:
1st Place: “Green Book” – 22″
2nd Place: “BlacKkKlansman” – 19
3rd Place: “A Star is Born,” “The Favourite,” “Vice” – 18
4th Place: “Roma” – 16
5th Place: “Bohemian Rhapsody” – 14
6th Place: “Black Panther” – 7
