2014 Best Editing Winner

Boyhood

7-19-2014Boyhood

I’ve given this award out to all sorts of frenetically cut action movies, and certainly for some very good reasons, but here I’ve decided to take a step back and reward something that often doesn’t get rewarded: invisible dramatic editing that almost seems effortless but takes incredible skill.  The crazy nature of how this was shot certainly played some role in the decision, but at the end of the day it was the meat and potatoes scene to scene cutting that really won the day.  The film was able to find just the right way to present twelve years in the life and take out all the boring parts.
