So, I can only imagine what it would be like to edit a full length animated feature film as a day job! Although that’s a whole ‘nother type of editing it sure sounds like quite a job. Fortunately the Eddies are here to recognize those who excel in the field.
Last Sunday, the American Cinema Editors (ACE) handed out their annual awards, and as you can imagine, Pixar went home with a prize! Kevin Nolting, editor on Up, was honored with Best Edited Animated Feature Film. Pixar’s 10th was up against two other big ‘toons, Coraline and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
As far as I can tell, this is the first time that the Eddies included an Animated category, although WALL•E won Best Edited Comedy/Musical last year. The Hurt Locker and The Hangover also took home top prizes.
Check out the rest of the winners here.
Congratulations on this unique victory, Kevin Nolting!
