Not a lot of surprises at last night ACE Eddie Awards where Max Max: Fury Road, The Big Short and Inside Out took the top honors in the Drama, Comedy and Animated categories for Best Edited Feature Films. Amy won the Documentary category.
Mad Max: Fury Road and The Big Short will go head to head for the Film Editing Oscar next month with the ACE Eddie putting them out in front of The Revenant, Spotlight (which was not nominated here) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
With the separation of Drama and Comedy here and the top two contenders each winning it’s essentially a draw in terms of predicting who will take home the Oscar.
On the television side, Mad Men, House of Cards and Inside Amy Schumer took home Series awards with Bessie taking Longform and The Jinx winning Documentary.
