It must be some consolation to Paul Greengrass, Tom Hanks and Sony Pictures– “Captain Phillips” was named the Best Edited dramatic film of the year last night by the Eddie Awards. Billy Ray has the screenplay award for the same movie. Tom Hanks got shut out of the Oscars. But voters in these awards are circling back to this fine film. Maybe Tom will get to present Best Picture. The Oscars theme this year is about heroes. Makes sense.
Sony actually got both of the big awards last night. “American Hustle” received the comedy Eddie for Best Editing.
