Nominations for the 69th annual ACE Eddie Awards have been announced, recognizing the best editing of 2018 in film, television, and documentaries. On the narrative film side of things, it’s divided into three different categories: Drama, Comedy, and Animated Film. This is how Deadpool 2 scored a nomination—in the Comedy category, alongside Crazy Rich Asians, Vice, The Favourite, and Green Book.

On the drama side, a nomination for Bohemian Rhapsody signals continued industry support for the commercial successful yet critically divided film, and is further evidence it may indeed land a Best Picture Oscar nomination. The other drama nominees include BlacKkKlansman, First Man, Roma, and A Star Is Born, and for my money A Star Is Born should take this in a cake walk. The editing in Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut is sublime and pitch-perfect—remember that cut during Lady Gaga’s final performance? Chills.

Check out the full list of ACE Eddie nominations below, including in TV and documentaries. The awards will be held on February 1st.
