For best edited drama, the thrilling sci-fi adaptation of Dunes, as well as the Netflix psychological drama The power of the dog are huge standouts, as the former had a box office of $398.3 million while the latter was watched by over 1.2 million households. Of course, dramas aren’t the only films to be featured, such as Best Edited Comedy, the powerful political satire Don’t look upfeaturing Leonardo DiCaprioand the musical Tick, tick… BOOM!featuring Andrew Garfieldwere also rewarded with nominations.

Movies aren’t the only medium to earn these awards, as the best-edited single-camera comedy series features household favorites such as Calm your enthusiasm (especially the episodes “Igor, Gregor, & Timor” and “The Mormon Advantage”) as well as Ted Lasso (especially the episodes “No Weddings and a Funeral” and “Rainbow”). Along with comedies comes many great dramas, including the powerful coming-of-age story Euphoria as well as the internet’s favorite Korean horror series squid game.

Limited series are no slouch either, as the jaw-dropping drama Easttown Mare is up for the Best Edition Limited Series award (specifically the “Fathers” and “Illusions” episodes). Alongside this series, the infamous HBO Max series The White Lotus is also nominated for the award (specifically the episodes “Departures” and “Mysterious Monkeys”).
