The American Cinema Editors hand out the ACE Eddie awards at the end of this month, and all the expected Oscar front-runners scored nominations. Moonlight, La La Land, and Manchester by the Sea are competing in the two feature film categories. In the Oscars race, though, this might not actually turn out to be an impressive development: Spotlight, last year's Best Picture winner, didn't score an Eddie nomination. The documentary feature category had a pair of wild cards: The Beatles: Eight Days a Week and Netflix's Amanda Knox joined 13th, O.J.: Made in America, and Weiner. On the TV side, Stranger Things had a strong showing with two nominations, but television editors have been watching a lot of Better Call Saul: The AMC show scooped three of the five slots for Best Edited One-Hour Series, Commercial.
