Everything Everywhere All at Once, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio Honored with British Film Editors Cut Above Awards


On Friday, Feb. 24, the British Film Editors (BFE) announced the winners for its third annual BFE Cut Above Awards. 27 Editors walked away with a Cut Above Award, the UK’s only ceremony solely dedicated to celebrating excellence in editing, for their work nominated over 12 categories.

Everything Everywhere All at Once (edited by Paul Rogers) and Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio (Holly Klein & Ken Schretzmann, ACE) kicked off what would be a winning weekend, both of them walking away with PGA Awards, as well as the latter dominating at the Annie Awards, both on Saturday night. The PGA-winning doc Navalny also received an award from BFE for editors, Maya Daisy Hawke and Langdon Page, in the Best Edited Current Affairs category, while filmmaker Brett Morgen received an award for his work on the David Bowie experience, Moonage Daydream. Oddly, another Oscar-nominated editor (and former Oscar winner) Mikkel E. G. Nielsen (Sound of Metal) received a BFE award for editing Martin McDonagh‘s The Banshees of Inisherin as the Best Edited British Drama.

Hulu series The Bear also continued its winning ways with a BFE for Best Edited Series: Drama.

Douglas Bunnage Flavell (The Greatest Game) received the Michael Johns Award for Outstanding Assistant Editor, while the Chris Crookall Award for Breakthrough Editor went to Fiona Starogardzki ISE (Love, Rosie).

The ceremony was hosted by investigative journalist, Raphael Rowe and live-streamed via BFE’s website. It was accompanied by an in-person event at Century Club in London, complete with red carpet welcoming nominees, BFE members and industry guests. The awards celebrated Editors in the categories of Drama, Documentary, Animation, Current Affairs and Comedy plus two further honors, peer nominated and judged by a dedicated jury to recognize personal and professional achievement within the industry.

The ceremony was rounded off with a song from singer-songwriter, Life Like Charlie – a tradition that has been in place since the very first Cut Above Awards, Charlie writes a tongue-and-cheek song poking fun at editors’ woes.

Previous songs include “Fix it in the Edit,” and “Everybody’s Welcome at the Oscars.”
