ACE Eddie and CAS Winners

Well, all those who thought it would be a clean King's Speech sweep, are in for a surprise, as it looks like its going to be a pretty fragmented year, with The Social Network taking editing, and most likely director, and TKS taking the top prize. However, it is important to note that the Eddie Winner has won Best Editing 17 out of the last 19 years, and Best Picture 14 times. So TSN is still in this race. Here are the Eddie winners:

Best Edited Feature, Drama: The Social Network
Best Edited Feature Comedy/Musical: Alice in Wonderland
Best Edited Animated Feature: Toy Story 3
Best Edited Documentary : Exit Through the Gift Shop
Best Edited Miniseries or Movie for TV: Temple Grandin
Best Edited 1/2-Hour Series: Modern Family
Best Edited 1-Hour Series: Walking Dead
Best Edited 1-Hour Non-Commercial Series: Treme

While the CAS has matched up the last two years, in general it is not the best predictor of the Sound Mixing Award. While True Grit's win definitely puts it in the running, my guess is that the larger voting Academy will go with the more flashy Inception. Here are the rest of the winners:

True Grit: Outstanding Acheivement in Sound Mixing for Feature Film
Boardwalk Empire: Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for a Television Series
Temple Grandin: Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for Television Movie or Mini-Series
