And with this, there's only one major group left to announce its nominees for the best in film for the 2020/21 movie season: AMPAS. The American Cinema Editors has unveiled the nominations for its 71st annual Eddie Awards. Given the lack of major comedy contenders at awards this year, ACE's choices in the Dramatic category here look like a solid five to predict for next week's Oscar nods, though watch out for Promising Young Woman, featuring here as a comedy. Winners will be announced on the 17th of April.
