Editor’s Branch Announces 2018 ACE Eddie Award Nominees

1

The American Cinema Editors (ACE) announced their nominations for the 2018 Eddie Awards.

The guild instituted several rule changes for 2018. On the television side, the categories are now split into Drama and Comedy, rather than 30-minute or one-hour series. In documentaries, there are separate categories for film and television. In years past, there were five nominees for film and three for television, but now each category will have four nominees.

The Eddie Awards will be presented at a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton on January 26.
