‘Dunkirk,’ ‘I, Tonya,’ ‘Black-ish’ Win ACE Editing Awards

The cascading timeline structure of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” and the manic assemblage of “I, Tonya” were among the editing feats that wowed the American Cinema Editors organization this year. The two films won the dramatic and comedy prizes, respectively, at the 68th annual ACE Eddie Awards.

Coco” won the animated feature film prize, while Oscar-omitted “Jane” took the documentary feature award. Netflix’s “Five Came Back” won in the non-theatrical documentary category.

On the television side, ABC’s “Black-ish” and HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” won in the comedy fields, while drama honors went to FX’s “Fargo” and Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” NatGeo’s “Genius” won for miniseries/TV motion picture, and “VICE News Tonight” took the non-scripted series gong.

Both “Dunkirk” and “I, Tonya” received Oscar nominations for film editing this year, along with “Baby Driver,” “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
