On Monday night the 2009 Star Trek movie picked up yet another guild nomination. The American Cinema Editors (ACE) nominated Star Trek’s pair of editors Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey for Best Edited Dramatic Feature Film. Earlier in the day the WGA nominated the Star Trek writers, but the Cinematographers did not follow suit. Below we have a full breakdown of the guild nominations for Star Trek so far.
Star Trek Editors up for an Eddie
The ACE breaks down their ‘Eddie’ editing awards into three categories: Dramatic, Comedy/Musical and Animated. Star Trek was nominated in the Dramatic category here is the full list (via ACE site).
BEST EDITED FEATURE FILM (DRAMATIC):
- "Avatar," Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E.; John Refua, A.C.E.; James Cameron, A.C.E.
- "District 9," Julian Clarke
- "The Hurt Locker," Bob Murawski, Chris Innis
- "Star Trek," Maryann Brandon, A.C.E; Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E.
- "Up in the Air," Dana Glauberman, A.C.E.
This is Brandon’s first ACE nomination, but she has previously been nominated for an Emmy (for Alias). Markey has was nominated for an ACE for her work on the TV movie Life Support and has also been nominated for three Emmys (with one win).
It is interesting to see how again we see Avatar and District 9 listed. This seems to be a year for the guilds take sci-fi seriously.

For those keeping score here is how Star Trek has done with the guild nominations so far (one one guild has announced winners):
- CSA: Best Casting (Studio Feature Film) [WON]
- SAG: Best Stunt Ensemble
- PGA: Best Picture
- DGA: no nomination
- ADG: Best Production Design (Fantasy)
