The comedy, VICE released by Videovision Entertainment in South Africa on 1 February, won the coveted BAFTA award for Best Editing (Hank Corwin) in London this evening.
VICE started the awards season on good footing having won numerous awards prior to winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor (Musical or Comedy), and it had already won 24 awards prior to the BAFTAs. The film also received eight Academy Award® nominations in the categories Best Picture; Actor in a Leading Role (Christian Bale), Actress in a Supporting Role (Amy Adams), Actor in a Supporting Role (Sam Rockwell), Directing (Adam McKay), Original Screenplay (Adam McKay), Editing (Hank Corwin) and Makeup and Hairstyle (Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe & Patricia DeHaney).
VICE is the story of Dick Cheney, the most powerful US Vice President in history, and how his policies changed the world as we know it. VICE explores the epic story about how a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the world in ways that we still feel today.
Videovision Entertainment’s Head of Acquisition and Distribution, Sanjeev Singh commented, “We are thrilled with Best Editing award VICE received at the BAFTA’s tonight. The Hollywood Reporter listed VICE as the best film of the year, and we look forward to the film continuing its winning streak at the Academy Awards on 24 February.”
VICE is a Videovision Entertainment release through United International Pictures (South Africa).
