Note that this list agrees with the Best Director list on only three titles: American Hustle, Gravity, 12 Years a Slave. And if memory serves, it has been decades since a film won Best Picture without at least being *nominated* for Best Film Editing. So those would be the three Best Picture front-runners, right there.

Shocker! The ACE award for dramatic films went to Captain Phillips, and not to one of the two "dramatic" Oscar front-runners for Best Picture. American Hustle, which is also a front-runner for the Oscar, won in the "comedy" department.

FWIW, in responding to local colleagues who asked what films they should nominate for Best Editing for our WAFCA awards, I offered up Captain Phillips -- a movie I didn't much care for, but thought was well edited.
