The AMC horror series is nominated for the Best Edited One-Hour Series for Commercial Television, while the HBO fantasy drama is vying for a prize in the Non-Commercial category.
Fresh off the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, a number of TV shows are now in the running for prizes from American Cinema Editors (ACE). In the list of nominees for the 62nd Annual ACE Eddie Awards, the likes of "The Walking Dead" and "Homeland" emerge as the recipients.
The AMC zombie-themed show is up for Best Edited One-Hour Series for Commercial Television, facing off "The Good Wife" and the canceled "Friday Night Lights". "Breaking Bad", however, has a bigger chance to win since it grabs two nominations in the category.
"Homeland" is one of the contenders for Best Edited One-Hour Series for Non-Commercial Television. The Showtime thriller must compete with two HBO's shows, "Boardwalk Empire" and "Game of Thrones", to win the trophy.
In Best Edited Half-Hour Series for Television, "Modern Family" is up against "Curb Your Enthusiasm". The former gets one nod, while the latter is honored with two nominations. Another category, Best Edited Mini-Series or Motion Picture for Television, pits "Downton Abbey" against "Mildred Pierce" and "Cinema Verite".
The winners of this year's ACE Eddie Awards will be announced during a ceremony on February 18 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, with Patton Oswalt serving as the host. The show will also hand out kudos for best edited movies.
