SELMA AND UNBROKEN MISS OUT ON ACE EDDIE NOMS IN A CROWDED FIELD


A year where I count upwards of ten films vying for Oscar Editing nominations, the American Cinema Editors have announced their nominations in their field. For the first time, a tie has resulted in six nods for the group in their Dramatic Feature Film category. Oscar heavyweights such as Birdman, Boyhood and The Imitation Game are present, alongside surging contenders American Sniper, Into the Woods and Nightcrawler. But another pair of hot new titles, Selma and Unbroken, miss out, even in the expanded Drama field. Could this affect their shots not only at Oscar Best Editing nominations, but at Oscar Best Picture wins? Winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony on the 30th of January.
