2008 ACE Eddie Nominees

The all-important American Cinema Editors released their nominees today, and the consensus has now cemented to a groan-inducing level. I can't really imagine any film knocking out any of these five drama nominees when the Academy announces on the 22nd. Here are the film nominees.

Perhaps it's not so much that there has to be a comedy in the Best Picture mix each year, but that there has to be a Fox Searchlight nominee.

You think I could bribe enough daft and ancient Academy members to *not* vote for "Frost/Nixon" to sway the vote? I'll even tell 'em to mark off "The Wrestler," just for you ;)

If you hold that much sway within the Academy, then I say pimp out The Wrestler as much as possible. Contrary to opinion, I don't want Frost/Nixon anywhere near the Oscars anymore than you do (except, of course, Frank Langella).
