Well, this shakes things up. With "American Hustle," "12 Years A Slave" and "Gravity" perceived as the frontrunners headed into the Oscars, which are in just a few short weeks, "Captain Phillips" is uh, rocking the boat, in the precursor awards. With a win at the WGA Awards last week, "Captain Phillips" made it clear it was in the mix—and after the ACE Eddie Awards, it could be a bona fide contender come Oscar night.

Captain Phillips

Well, this shakes things up. With "American Hustle," "12 Years A Slave" and "Gravity" perceived as the frontrunners headed into the Oscars, which are in just a few short weeks, "Captain Phillips" is uh, rocking the boat, in the precursor awards. With a win at the WGA Awards last week, "Captain Phillips" made it clear it was in the mix—and after the ACE Eddie Awards, it could be a bona fide contender come Oscar night.

Beating out a field that included heavy hitters such as "12 Years A Slave," "Gravity" and "Her," the Paul Greengrass film took Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic). That being said, arguably it's toughest competition, "American Hustle," did win the Comedy Or Musical category. Generally, no one wins Best Picture without Best Editing, but, as this awards season has shown during the precursor awards, there is no clear narrative forming, which is going to make for a very interesting few weeks.

Full list of winners below.
