MUMBAI: The American Cinema Editors‘ 60th annual ACE Eddie Awards has nominated Avatar, District 9 and Star Trek for this year‘s awards.
These three films will compete for best edited dramatic feature film along with The Hurt Locker and Up in the Air.
Two Meryl Streep films namely Julie & Julia and It‘s Complicated were nominated in the best comedy or musical category along with (500) Days of Summer, The Hangover and A Serious Man.
For best animated film, the contenders are Coraline, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Up.
This Is It, the Michael Jackson documentary, scored a slot in ACE‘s best documentary race alongside The Cove and Food, Inc.
An honorary society of motion picture editors founded in 1950, ACE‘s nominations usually point toward Oscar victory since no film has won an Oscar for best picture without also having received an ACE editing nom since Ordinary People in 1981.
Turning to television, the editors nominated episodes of 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage in the half-hour series category.
Winners will be announced at ACE‘s awards ceremony on 14 February at the Beverly Hilton.
