Once again Avatar, Star Trek, and District 9 Dominate an award nomination for best in film. This time it's the 59th ACE Eddies Awards (American Cinema Editors) for best edited feature film. If you are wondering what exactly ACE is all about just like I was. It is just this;

ACE, the AMERICAN CINEMA EDITORS, is an honorary society of motion picture editors founded in 1950. Film editors are voted into membership on the basis of their professional achievements, their dedication to the education of others and their commitment to the craft of editing.
These awards will be presented on February 14, 2010 at the Beverly Hilton CA. This is the third credible award organization that has awarded these three films top honors for best of film category. You think that there is a theme going here. Especially heading towards the big daddy of them all the Oscars.
If I was a betting man I would say that Avatar will most likely win best movie of the year in almost all the award shows. It's the second biggest film ever and in another week it will probably be the best box office money maker of all time a head of Titanic. Star Trek will claim its honors in other categories and District 9 will more then likely dominate most likely all the independent film awards. Up will take the Best in animation. Just threw that one in for the heck of it. Here is the list of films that were nominated along with the previously mentioned sci fi films.
