Excitement was running high. The team behind Sound of Metal, Darius Marder’s offbeat drama about a punk rock drummer (Riz Ahmed) who faces life-changing decisions after losing his hearing, was gathered together via Zoom to watch the Oscar nomination announcements. Mikkel E.G. Nielsen, the film’s editor, was settled in front of his computer at his home in Copenhagen when the unthinkable happened. The screen went blank.#editor#academy#oscars#sound of metal#mikkel e.g. nielsen

The American Cinema Editors guild, which hands out its awards on April 17, has a good track record as a preview of the Oscar winner for Best Picture (18 out of the last 30) and a great one for forecasting who will win the Film Editing Oscar (22 of the last 30).

Four of this year’s Academy Awards nominees contend for this cutting prize; “The Father” was snubbed by the American Cinema...#ace#awards#academy#american cinema editors#oscars#eddies

"Nomadland" could be a threat, just because it's l...#editing#academy#oscars#academy awards
