The Directors & Editors Guild of NZ congratulates New Zealand editor Tom Eagles for his Oscar and BAFTA nominations for best editing on Jojo Rabbit.
Eagles is nominated in the same Oscar category as The Irishman, Joker, Parasite and Ford v Ferrari. Other films nominated for the BAFTA are Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, Le Mans ’66 (Ford v Ferrari), Joker and The Irishman.
An alumnus of DEGNZ’s International Editor Mentorships, Eagles was mentored by award-winning Australian editor Dany Cooper in 2016 after completing Hunt for the Wilderpeople. The mentorship offered genuine insight into creative process and engagement with the industry as a whole, while providing a solid platform upon which the recipient could build an international career.
Jojo Rabbit is nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture, and six BAFTAs.
