OSCAR HOPEFULS WIN ACE EDDIES


There was much speculation around the ACE Eddies as they chose their favourite achievements in their field of filmmaking from 2014. Box office heavyweight American Sniper and guild high-flyer Birdman posed significant threats, a history-making one in Birdman's case (no Comedy / Musical contender has ever won here over an Oscar nominee without an Oscar nod itself). But Boyhood won in the Drama category and The Grand Budapest Hotel in the Comedy or Musical category, and all is well with the world. May Boyhood muscle its way back to the front of the pack imo. It's the best case scenario. Meanwhile, The LEGO Movie and Citizenfour won in the Animated and Documentary categories, respectively. For a flashback, check out the American Cinema Editors' nominations.
