The awards season train continues to roll full steam towards the Oscar nominations next week, and January sees all the individual guilds weigh in first with who they're honoring in their respective fields. And today brings us the editors, who highlight the year in cutting with the nominees for the 64th Annual ACE Eddie Awards.
And the shocker this year? Well, none really. Splitting into Dramatic and Comedy/Musical categories allows them to pretty much cover all the bases, with none of the big players omitted. We're a bit surprised to see two of the most acclaimed and ambitious documentaries of 2013—"The Act Of Killing" and "Stories We Tell"—get shut out, particularly considering how well crafted they are. Meanwhile, it's kind of hilarious to see four "Breaking Bad" episodes hog the TV Drama category. ("Ozymandias" all the way!)
The awards will be handed out on February 7th. Full nominees below. [THR]
