Oscars Alert: Editing Nominees from Guild Sharpen Academy Awards Picture

It’s just like when you go to the eye doctor and he/she says, How about this lens, this another one. Slowly the picture comes into focus. Now the Eddie Awards nominees have been announced for the editors who actually shaped the best films of the year. Mix these names in with the DGA noms and and SAG choices, and Producers Guild. Frankly, for comedy film, just hand the Eddie to Thelma Schoonmaker. She edited “The Wolf of Wall Street” under the craziest and most frantic circumstances. And still, when you see her, she’s the picture of calm. I think the woman drinks in secret!
