Seven days left until the Oscars, and the final precursor awards roll out this weekend. Tonight sees the WGA Awards, and last night was the ACE Eddie Awards, run by the organization for film editors, and rewarding the best editing in cinema in 2012.

And we’re sure it won’t come as a huge surprise to you that “Argo” was the big winner of the night with the film’s cutter, William Goldenberg,  wrote Oliver Lyttelton for blogs.indiewire.com. Read more here: http://bit.ly/XfDzG8

While ‘Silver Linings’ is certainly an Oscar contender in many categories, it seems unlikely to be a real threat in the Editing category, so this seems to clear the way for Goldenberg to pick up the Academy Award (indeed, his closest competition is probably… himself, as co-editor with Dylan Tichenor of “Zero Dark Thirty.”).
