ACE Eddie Awards adds TV Variety Talk/Sketch Show or Special category
  • --

American Cinema Editors (ACE) has added a new TV category to the ACE Eddie Awards: Best Edited Variety Talk/Sketch Show or Special. 

“The ACE Board unanimously voted to add this category,” stated ACE executive director Jenni McCormick.  “Great editing is a staple in all kinds of programming and the specific challenges and achievements that apply to variety, talk and sketch entertainment deserve to have a light shone on them at the Eddies. We’re delighted to recognize the editors in this new category at the show in April.” 

As announced earlier this year, ACE also added a new category in animation: Best Edited Animated Series (Non-Theatrical). ACE is now accepting submissions for both inaugural categories and all other categories through February 12, 2021 on the ACE website.
The 72nd Annual ACE Eddie Awards will be held on April 18, 2021.  Exact plans for the ceremony are still to be determined but will likely be virtual in light of the pandemic. 
Three special awards will be handed out that evening including two Career Achievement honorees 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 soon.
