‘Arrival,’ ‘Deadpool,’ ‘Stranger Things’ Land ACE Editing Nominations

Members of the American Cinema Editors have weighed in with a list of nominations for the 67th annual ACE Eddie Awards, taking place on Friday, Jan. 27.

All three of the awards season’s strongest players — “La La Land,” “Moonlight” and “Manchester by the Sea” — were recognized in the film categories. Denis Villeneuve’s alien invasion psychodrama “Arrival,” Mel Gibson’s World War II epic “Hacksaw Ridge,” and David Mackenzie’s indie darling “Hell or High Water” filled out the drama category.

Joining “La La Land” in the comedy field were “Deadpool,” 20th Century Fox’s irreverent superhero blockbuster; “Hail, Caesar!,” the Coen brothers’ latest jaunt (the filmmaker siblings editing together once again under the pseudonym Roderick Jaynes); “The Jungle Book,” Disney’s mega-hit that could be a dark horse for an Oscar nod here; and in a twist, “The Lobster,” Yorgos Lanthimos’ absurdist satire that continues to maintain a footprint this season with critical and Golden Globes recognition.

On the television side, “Better Call Saul” dominated the commercial series category with three nominations, joined by episodes of “Mr. Robot” and “This Is Us.”  Non-Commercial nominees included installments of “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” “Stranger Things” and “Westworld.” Meanwhile, “Veep” picked up a pair of nominations in the half-hour series category, with HBO stablemate “Silicon Valley” landing a nod as well.

See below for the full list of nominations. Final ballots will be mailed to ACE members on Jan. 6. Blue Ribbon screenings for television and documentary category judging will be held on Jan. 15. Voting ends Jan. 17.
