ACE Eddie Awards Nominations: ‘Oppenheimer’, ‘Barbie’, ‘Anatomy Of A Fall’ & More Vie For Editing Prizes

American Cinemas Editors has cut together the nominees for its 74rd annual ACE Eddie Awards, which will be handed out next month. See the list of all 13 film and TV categories below.

The group also said today that Nina West, who played Divine in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story and Edna Turnblad in the touring production of Hairspray, will host the March 3 ceremony at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Westwood.

More from Deadline

Vying for the marquee prize of Best Edited Feature Film (Drama, Theatrical) are the editors behind Anatomy of a Fall, Killers of the Flower Moon, Maestro, Oppenheimer and Past Lives. The Comedy Theatrical race will be among Air, American Fiction, Barbie, The Holdovers and Poor Things.

Since the turn of the 21st century, the Eddie winner for theatrical drama has gone on to score the Academy Award for Best Editing 13 of 23 times — but none of the past four years. In a twist, it was the Eddies’ 2023 comedy winner, Everything Everywhere All at Once, that ended up scooping the Oscar. Top Gun: Maverick took ACE’s top drama prize last year.
