ACE: Voting Timeline and Eligibility Requirements

May 9, 2019 | By

ACElogo-560x300American Cinema Editors (ACE) has announced that the 70th Annual ACE Eddie Awards, recognizing outstanding editing in film and television, will be held Friday, January 17, 2020 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.  The earlier date reflects a shift in timing to almost three weeks earlier than usual as the truncated awards season landscape (ignited by the Oscars® moving up to Feb. 9, 2020) begins to take shape.  The television categories eligibility dates have also changed — television contenders must have aired between Jan. 1, 2019 and Nov. 1, 2019. Feature film eligibility remains the same with contenders having to be released between Jan. 1, 2019 and Dec. 31, 2019.

The black-tie awards ceremony will unveil winners for outstanding editing in 11 categories of film and television including:

Best Edited Feature Film (Drama)
Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy)
Best Edited Animated Film
Best Edited Documentary (Feature)
Best Edited Documentary (Non-Theatrical)
Best Edited Drama Series for Non-Commercial Television
Best Edited Drama Series for Commercial Television
Best Edited Comedy Series for Non-Commercial Television
Best Edited Comedy Series for Commercial Television
Best Edited Miniseries or Motion Picture for Television
Best Edited Non-Scripted Series

Three special honors will be handed out that evening including two Career Achievement recipients presented to film editors of outstanding merit and the Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year honor presented to a filmmaker who exemplifies distinguished achievement in the art and business of film. Honorary award recipients will be announced later this year.
