A Century of Film

Editing

The very first films didn’t have editing.  But it didn’t take long for a filmmaker such as George Milies to discover how important editing was – his entire concept of special effects was built around what could be done with editing.  When films started to come out at feature length, it was the D.W. Griffith films that showed how editing could craft a great picture, followed just a few years later by the masterful work in the Sergei Eisenstein films.

Even though Editing may be the most important tech category in terms of constructing a film, it often gets overlooked.  Indeed, in my original points system, devised back in 1989, Editing was worth only 30 points and it was only a few years later where I realized it needed to be as high as Cinematography and Score.  Yet, the Academy overlooked it at first as well, including Cinematography and Art Direction in its initial categories but waiting until 1934 to add Editing.  Other groups would be late to add it as well, including the BAFTAs (1966), the critics (2008 and that was only for the BSFC) and the BFCA (2009).

Yet, so many of film’s great moments are completely reliant on the editing: the bone changing to the spaceship, the dissolve from a match to the desert sun, the transitions between stories in Pulp Fiction, the way you can create a song like “Tonight” on screen between multiple groups, the very structure for films like Out of Sight and Memento.

My Top 5 Editing in Film History:

  1. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
  2. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  3. Pulp Fiction
  4. Out of Sight
  5. Memento

note:  I rate all aspects of film on a 9 point scale.  They also correspond to the 100 point scale for Best Picture.  Films above *** (76-99) all land on the scale.  1 point is for 76-79, just worth mentioning.  2 points is for 80-83, a weak mention, 3 points is for 84-87, near great, 4 points is for 88-89 (which is ****), a solid nominee, 5 points is for 90-91, a very solid nominee, 6 points is for 92-93, a weak winner, a 7 points is for 94-95, a worthwhile winner, 8 points is 96-97, the kind of winner you can’t complain about even if it’s not your #1 choice and 9 points is for 98-99, the very best of all-time.  The above list are my 9 point films for Sound through 2011, listed chronologically.

The Editors

Daniel Mandell

Mandell was the foremost editor working for Samuel Goldwyn Productions.  He worked with William Wyler for over a decade and then with Billy Wilder for almost a decade.  He was the first editor to win three Oscars (Pride of the Yankees, Best Years of Our Lives, Apartment) and is still in the Top 5 in points.
Key Films:  The Best Years of Our Lives, The Apartment, One Two Three

Akira Kurosawa

A number of great directors have also been their own editors but until the pseudonym down below no great director did it anywhere near as often or as well as Kurosawa.
Key Films:  Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Ikiru

William H. Reynolds

By the early 70’s no single editor had held the title of most Oscar points since 1960 and in 1973 with his Oscar for The Sting, William H. Reynolds joined what was already a four-way tie.  Reynolds became the first director with 225 points starting in 1977 when he received his final nomination for The Turning Point after two wins (The Sound of Music was the other) and four other nominations.  He would stay #1 until 2005.  At ACE, by 1972 he had twice as many points as any other editor and no editor would get closer to him than that until 1998 and he’s just now had someone tie him for #1 in 2011.
Key Films:  The Godfather, The Sting, Compulsion

Michael Kahn

Kahn appears on my Editing list 20 times and all but one of them is for working with Spielberg.  He started working with Spielberg in 1977 on Close Encounters which also earned him his first Oscar nomination.  With three Oscars (the key films) he is now up to 250 points and after years of being in 1st place is in a tie for 1st place with the next editor.
Key Films:  Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan

Thelma Schoonmaker

There is no editor-director combination as well known as Thelma Schoonmaker and Martin Scorsese.  She worked with Marty on his first film then he worked under her as an assistant editor on Woodstock and since 1980 she’s been the editor for every Marty film winning three Oscars along the way and moving, with her latest nomination in 2011, into a tie for 1st place all-time in Oscar points.
Key Films:  GoodFellas, Raging Bull, The Departed, The Aviator

Roderick Jaynes

The most famous pseudonym in the film industry, the Oscar winning Jaynes doesn’t actually exist, of course.  He’s just the name the brothers use for their Editing credit and they are brilliant at what they do.  They only have two Oscar nominations as Jaynes but that is far too little to show how good they are what they do.
Key Films:  Blood Simple, Fargo, No Country for Old Men, Miller’s Crossing

The Academy Awards

Summary:

Though Editing is one of the most important technical aspects to a film it took until 1934 and the seventh Oscars before the award was handed out.  Though the first winner, Eskimo, didn’t earn a Picture nomination, it didn’t take long for it to be intimately connected with Picture though that would really be cemented in the 1950’s (see below).  It’s a sign of the quality of the entire film as can be seen from its connection to Picture and the lack of single nomination films.

While, like all the Tech categories, it was originally dominated by major studio players, it has increasingly come under the domination of editors connected to major directors with the top two editors in Oscar points are Michael Kahn (Spielberg) and Thelma Schoonmaker (Scorsese).

This is, to be honest, the worst Oscar category.  I just have a very different idea of what constitutes good editing (crisp timing, smooth transitions, making a film seem shorter) than the Academy (long, bloated epics).  The Oscar Score is the worst of any category and while it has gotten better over the years, it’s still quite bad.

Directors:

William Wyler held the lead for a while with 7 nominations and two wins from his films as could be expected given the connection between Editing and Picture.  Stanley Kramer would later tie Wyler with 7 noms but has no wins.  Later, Spielberg would come along and the 3 wins and 8 nominations for his films are both tops among directors.

Franchises:

The Bells of St Mary’s would be the first sequel to earn a nomination but after that it would take until Aliens for another sequel to earn one.  After that they have happened a bit more often (Godfather III though not II, T2) and it would take until 2003 for one to win (Return of the King) with another in 2007 (Bourne Ultimatum).

Genres:

Every genre has been represented with at least 6 nominations (even two for Documentary) and all of them have won (except Documentary) with only Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi and Kids not having won at least three times (just once for Horror – twice for the others).  But Drama lords above all with 41.28% of the nominations (more than four times any other genre with Musical, at exactly 10%, the only other one in double digits) and 35.90% of the winners.  War does well with winning (14.10% – twice as often as it is nominated).

Best Picture:

This category has been well connected with Picture since almost the beginning.  In the first five years alone, 20 of the 25 nominees were also nominated for Picture,.  Starting in 1950, it became even more closely connected.  Since 1950 only seven films have won Editing without a Picture nom and there was a seven year stretch (1956-62) of films winning both.  The category has existed for 78 years and in 69 of those years the Best Picture winner was at least nominated for Editing and 244 films were nominated for both.  In many years the matchup was 4/5 although only in 2002 did they match up 5/5.  Since the expansion of Picture, the only film to even earn an Editing nomination without a Picture nom was, surprisingly, the 2011 winner, Girl with the Dragon TattooOrdinary People is the most recent Picture winner without an Editing nom.

Foreign Films:

In 1969, Z would become, not only the first Foreign Film to earn an Oscar nom for Editing but also the only one to win the award.  Since then, five more films have managed an Editing nom though only the two Best Picture nominees (Life is Beautiful, Crouching Tiger) also managed Foreign Film noms.

Single Nominations:

Eskimo, the initial Oscar winner in this category, remains the only one to win the Oscar without any other nominations.  Since then, there have been basically three a decade (the 70’s had five but the other decades from the 40’s to the 90’s had three each) though none since 1995.  But there have been some great films whose only Oscar nomination was in Editing (The Great Escape, Day of the Jackal, Three Days of the Condor, The Commitments).

Other Categories:

Interestingly, Editing doesn’t match up so well with Picture and Director together.  Of the 245 films nominated for Picture and Editing only 183 were also nominated for Director and very few of those that weren’t were outside the 5 BP Era.  Eleven of those 62 films won the Oscar for Editing.  The biggest Tech overlap by far is Cinematography (197 nominated for both, 28 win both).  Everything overlaps at least 18 times except Animated Film which doesn’t overlap at all.

note:  The difference between this list and the previous one is that the first one is a flat total based on my 9 point scale.  In this one, it’s comparing my top five films to the ones the Oscars actually nominated.  So, in the first one, it’s how good are the nominees.  In this one it’s how good are the nominees compared to what else was eligible.

The BAFTA Awards

Summary:

The BAFTAs began their Editing award with a false start, for one year in 1966 as part of their “British” Tech awards.  They would drop it for 1967 then would bring it back in 1968 when they dropped the “British” part of their Tech categories.  Like the rest of their categories, it would be at four nominees until 2000 when it would expand to five.

Franchises:

The Godfather Part II would be the first sequel to earn a nomination while but it would take until The Bourne Ultimatum for one to win the award and no other sequel has managed to win it.  Several sequels have managed to earn nominations over the years.

Genres:

Drama dominates with 35% of the nominees and winners each.  Every genre has managed at least one nomination (with just one for Kids and Western – Babe and Dances with Wolves).  Sci-Fi, in spite of 10 nominations for films like Star Wars, E.T., The Matrix and Inception has never won the award.

Best Picture:

Of the 45 Editing winners, 16 of them also won Picture while 15 films have won Editing and been nominated for Picture.  It’s rare for a film to win Picture without at least an Editing nom with only two films (Sense and Sensibility, Pianist) doing it since 1987.

Single Nominees:

This is very very rare at the BAFTAs.  Only three films have earned an Editing nomination without any other noms (Performance, The National Health, Under Fire) and none since 1984.

Foreign Films:

Six Foreign Films have managed an Editing nom though only City of God managed to win Editing.

Other Categories:

The biggest overlap is actually Director (130 films nominated for both) with Picture (125) just behind.  No Editing nominee has been nominated for Animated Film and only Flashdance was also nominated for Song.  In one stretch, from 1996 to 2000, four films won Picture and Editing and none of those films won Director.  No film has won both Editing and Visual Effects and the only Foreign Film Editing winner didn’t win Foreign Film.  No film has won both Editing and British Film.

The Broadcast Film Critics Awards  (Critics Choice)

Summary:

Like most of the Tech awards at the BFCA, this award only finally came into existence in 2009.  They haven’t gone with the Consensus so far, giving their award to Avatar (the only win), Inception (the only win outside the Nighthawk) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which won the Oscar but not the Consensus).

American Cinema Editors (ACE)

Summary:

The ACE Awards began in 1961, one of the earlier guild awards (just the second Tech guild award).  They didn’t necessarily agree with the Oscars early on with only about half of the winners winning both and twice (West Side Story, Z) the Oscar winner wasn’t even ACE nominated.  In fact, the total lack of Foreign nominees until 1999 makes me wonder if they were even eligible.  It wasn’t until 1978, with the start of five straight winner agreements that the two groups finally became more compatible though Wargames was the only ACE winner before 1999 to fail to earn an Oscar nom.

In 1999, ACE split their awards into Drama and Comedy awards although, interestingly, there has still been at least usually one Oscar nominee that doesn’t earn an ACE nomination each year.  In 2009, after several Pixar nominees and an actual winner (Wall-E) in the Comedy category, ACE split again, adding a three nominee Animated film category.

William H. Reynolds moved into 1st place way back in 1965, by 1972 had twice as many points as any other editor and by 1977 had over twice as many points as any other editor and it would take until 1993 for another editor to even reach twice as many points as him.  Since then, with his work with Spielberg, Michael Kahn has been steadily moving up until he finally tied Reynolds in 2011.

The Nighthawk Awards

note:  Because my awards go, retroactively, all the way back through 1912, there are a lot more nominees and winners than in the other awards.  But I don’t always have a full slate of nominees and some years I don’t have any nominees.

Directors:

Hitchcock’s films have the most nominations (10) but only one win.  Kurosawa and Billy Wilder have three wins but only eight nominations each.  Marty (teamed with Thelma, of course) has the most wins (5).

Franchises:

No franchise has been particularly dominant.  Star Trek II is the first sequel to win the Nighthawk followed by Return of the King.  No series has more than three nominations or one win.

Genres:

With 30 wins and 128 nominations, Drama is the biggest genre but that’s to be expected.  Crime has been effective with 10 wins.  Every genre has at least two wins except Adventure which doesn’t have any, perhaps because so many Adventure films are too long.

Best Picture:

Of the 85 Picture winners, 70 of them also win Editing including every winner in the 40’s and every winner since 2003.  Of the other 15 Picture winners, 11 of them earn Editing nominations with only Greed, Rebel without a Cause, Winter Light, Deer Hunter missing out.  Of the 425 Editing nominees, 332 of them are nominated for Picture with another 27 being the #6 film of the year.  Only 16 Editing nominees aren’t in the Top 10 for the year and only three (The Naked City, Bullitt, The Bourne Ultimatum) not in the Top 20.  Of the winners, only Interiors (#3), Star Trek II (#5), Memento (#5) and The Hours (#6) aren’t the #1 or 2 film of the year.

Foreign Film:

There are 14 Foreign winners (all but three of which win Foreign Film and all but two of which win Picture).  There are another 59 nominees that are Foreign films with The Last Laugh the only one that doesn’t earn a Foreign Film nom.

Single Nominations:

The Lady from Shanghai is the only film to earn an Editing nomination and nothing else.  Only nine other films earn Editing with less than two total noms.

Other Categories:

There’s massive overlap with everything, especially Picture and Director.  Every Tech category has at least 10 winners that overlap with winning films in Editing.  The smallest overlap is Animated Film with only one film winning both Editing and Animated Film: Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Consensus Awards

Most Awards (not including the Nighthawk):

  • Slumdog Millionaire  (Oscar, ACE, BAFTA, BSFC)
  • The Hurt Locker  (Oscar, ACE, BAFTA, BSFC)

It would take until 1978 for a film to win the Oscar, ACE and BAFTA (the BAFTA began in 1968).  The following films have all won that.  The last two also earned BFCA noms but not wins because no film has swept all four awards.

  • The Deer Hunter
  • All That Jazz
  • Raging Bull
  • Platoon
  • JFK
  • Schindler’s List
  • The English Patient
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • The Social Network

Between 1961 and 1967, after ACE began but before the BAFTAs started giving an award for Editing, three films won both awards:

  • How the West Was Won
  • Mary Poppins
  • The Sound of Music

Consensus Chart

note:  The chart below I imported from Excel and I hope it isn’t too confusing.  It’s about as big as I could make to still have it fit.  It just fits out the nominees for the major groups from 2009 to 2011.

See It Only for the Editing

Editing is a key component of a film.  As a result, it’s rare for a film to earn points in Editing without points in major categories like directing or writing or even acting.  Of the over 16,000 films I have seen that were released through 2011, this is the only one that earns points for Editing (and it’s only a 2) and no other points.

  1. Stay  (2005, ***)

Since 2011

Oscar Notes:  Spielberg has had another nomination.  Mad Max is the latest sequel to win.  Drama is way down since 2011 with just 12 nominees (34%) and one winner (Argo).  In 2014, Birdman would become the first Picture winner since 1980 not to earn an Editing nom.  Only three films have managed Editing noms without a Picture nom since 2011 (Force Awakens, I Tonya, Baby Driver).  Only Argo, however, has managed to win both.  Michael Kahn once again leads with 275 points but if Thelma is nominated for The Irishman they would be back in a tie.  Both Mad Max and Hacksaw Ridge won while being the worst of the nominees.

BAFTA Notes:  Mad Max: Fury Road became the second sequel to win Editing.  Since Argo won Picture, Director and Editing in 2012, no Editing winner has even been nominated for Picture and only Whiplash was nominated for Director.  Of the seven films to win Editing since 2011, four of them (Rush, Hacksaw Ridge, Baby Driver, Vice) won no other BAFTA awards.  Boyhood became just the third Picture winner since 1987 to not earn an Editing nom.  Both Mad Max and Hacksaw Ridge won while being the worst of the nominees.

BFCA Notes:  The BFCA finally started going with the Consensus in 2013 with Gravity and most of its winners since have won the Consensus (Mad Max, La La Land, Dunkirk).

ACE Notes:  Craig Wood and Jay Cassidy are now tied with Chris Lebenzon in 1st place in Comedy with 125 points.  Stephen Schaffer leads Animated with 125 points but that includes 75 points in Comedy for Animated films before the separate Animated category existed.  Michael Kahn is in 1st place overall with 350 points and Thelma has also tied Reynolds with 300 points and can move up with a nomination from The Irishman.  No other editor has more than 200 points.  The Coens, with 150 points as Roderick Jaynes, have the most points for any editors without an ACE win with 100 of those points coming in Comedy.

Nighthawk Notes:  After 50 years in 1st place in weighted points, Kurosawa has dropped to second with Michael Kahn currently in 1st with 508.  Moreover, if Thelma earns enough points for The Irishman (quite possible) she will also pass Kurosawa.

9 point Editing Since 2011:

  • Birdman
  • La La Land
  • Arrival
  • Dunkirk
  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

The Nighthawk Winners:

  • 2012:  Lincoln  (Oscar, BAFTA, ACE, BFCA)
  • 2013:  Gravity  (Oscar, BAFTA, ACE, BFCA)
  • 2014:  Birdman  (BAFTA, ACE, BFCA)
  • 2015:  Carol
  • 2016:  La La Land  (Oscar, BAFTA, ACE, BFCA)
  • 2017:  Dunkirk  (Oscar, BAFTA, ACE, BFCA)
  • 2018:  First Man  (BAFTA, ACE, BFCA)

Chart / Consensus Notes:

Mad Max would be the first film to sweep all four awards groups and the first to win six total awards.  Zero Dark Thirty is the only film to win all three critics groups that give an award for editing (LA, Boston, Chicago).

See It Only For the Editing:

One other film has managed to earn points for Editing (and again it’s just a 2) without any other points: The Bling Ring.
