American Cinema Editors (ACE) held its awards ceremony Saturday night for the 61st annual ACE Eddie Awards in film, television and documentaries (not to be confused with the Edda Awards). The winners for Best Edited Feature in the Dramatic category was The Social Network, while the Comedy winner was Alice in Wonderland.
The nominees in the Dramatic category had included the strong contenders Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception and The King's Speech. The competition in the comedy category consisted of Easy A, The Kids Are All Right, Made in Dagenham and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.
The Animation award went to Toy Story 3. The winner in the Documentary category was Banksy's Exit Through the Gift Shop.
The ACE Eddie Awards are generally thought to be a strong indicator of how the Oscars will vote for editing. The winner of the Oscar for editing has matched with the ACE Eddies for the last nine years in a row.
The winners for television included Modern Family, The Walking Dead, Treme and Temple Grandin.
