‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘Baby Driver,’ ‘Big Little Lies’ Pick Up ACE Editing Nominations

Films such as “Blade Runner 2049,” “Dunkirk” and “Baby Driver” joined television series like “Black-ish,” “Better Call Saul” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” as nominees for American Cinema Editors’ 68th annual ACE Eddie Awards Wednesday.

“Blade Runner” and “Dunkirk” were nominated in the dramatic film category along with “Molly’s Game,” “The Post” and “The Shape of Water.” “Baby Driver” was recognized alongside “Get Out,” “I, Tonya,” “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” in the comedy field.

The “Three Billboards” nomination is noteworthy as the film competes in the drama category at the Golden Globes this year, yet it has been situated as a comedy with ACE.

Other TV series nominated include “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Portlandia,” “Will & Grace,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Fargo” and “Game of Thrones,” while miniseries/TV movies in the mix include “Feud,” “Genius” and “The Wizard of Lies.” HBO’s “Big Little Lies” was chalked up in the drama series category.

On the film critics circuit so far this year, “Baby Driver” and “Dunkirk” have reaped the most kudos.
