BEST FILM EDITING


The art of the film editor is often one of the most difficult to see, as it should be. A good film editor chooses the best shots, the right moments for a close-up to heighten the emotion, the best take from what might be many. They construct the moving images into a coherent narrative story, and a simple cut here or an insert shot there can change an entire performance or the entire meaning of a scene. Here were the Academy's choices for the best achievements in film editing for each year ...
