Dunkirk - 2018 ACE Eddie Award Nominations

Even though we’re now officially into 2018, awards season continues in Hollywood. The Golden Globes are coming up this weekend and now the various guilds and organizations that represent the talented people who work behind the scenes of your favorite movies are putting forth the nominations for their own awards.

Today, it’s the American Cinema Editors announcing the nominees for their 68th ACE Eddie Awards. Like the Golden Globes, the ACE Eddie Awards divide the motion picture categories up into “dramatic” and “comedy,” which means Get Out is again strangely regarded as a comedy. Other nominees across the movie board include Dunkirk, Baby Driver and The LEGO Batman Movie. Meanwhile, television nominees include Portlandia, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones and more.

Check out the full list of the 2018 ACE Eddie Award nominations below.

As you’ll see, awards season favorites landed nominations in both feature film categories, though some like Call Me By Your Name, Battle of the Sexes and Phantom Thread were left out in the wind. Plus, smaller movies like A Ghost Story were ignored, but that’s usually how it goes with the American Cinema Editors. Of course, only five of these films will end up nominated for an Academy Award when the time comes. Anyway, without further adieu, here are all the nominations:
