Argo Silver Linings Playbook

Seven days left until the Oscars, and the final precursor awards roll out this weekend. Tonight sees the WGA Awards, and last night was the ACE Eddie Awards, run by the organization for film editors, and rewarding the best editing in cinema in 2012.

And we're sure it won't come as a huge surprise to you that "Argo" was the big winner of the night with the film's cutter, William Goldenberg, beating "Life Of Pi," "Lincoln," "Skyfall" and "Zero Dark Thirty" in the Best Edited Feature Film (Drama) category. Meanwhile, "Silver Linings Playbook" editors Jay Cassidy and Crispin Struthers picked up the Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy or Musical) prize over "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Les Misérables," "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Ted."

While 'Silver Linings' is certainly an Oscar contender in many categories, it seems unlikely to be a real threat in the Editing category, so this seems to clear the way for Goldenberg to pick up the Academy Award (indeed, his closest competition is probably... himself, as co-editor with Dylan Tichenor of "Zero Dark Thirty."). But we'll see how that one plays out on Sunday. Meanwhile, "Searching For Sugar Man" continued its awards sweep in the Documentary Category with an award for Malik Bendjelloul, while Nicholas C. Smith and Robert Grahamjones won in Animation for Pixar's "Brave."  Read the full list of winners below. [Variety]
