Film Editing is one of the most important parts of the film-making process. It is taking all the hours of footage that have been filmed and turning them into something amazing. Or messy. A film can be saved or killed during the editing process, and much respect is due to these nominated film editors:

  • “American Hustle” – Jay Cassidy, Crispin Struthers and Alan Baumgarten
  • “Captain Phillips” – Christopher Rouse
  • “Dallas Buyers Club” – John Mac McMurphy and Martin Pensa
  • “Gravity” – Alfonso Cuarón and Mark Sanger
  • “12 Years a Slave” – Joe Walker
