The American Cinema Editors Honor The Trial of the Chicago 7


The American Cinema Editors (ACE) handed out their Eddie Awards yesterday, honoring the best editing of 2020.  In something of an upset, The Trial of the Chicago 7 beat out Nomadland.  Nomadland is considered to be the clear Oscar favorite but perhaps we’re being too quick to dismiss the possibility of a terrible movie like Chicago 7 pulling off a surprise best picture victory.

Two words: Green Book.

Anyway, here are the Eddie winners:
