The BAFTA Award for Best Editing is one of several annual awards presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). The film-voting members of the Academy select the five nominated films in each category; only the principal editor(s) for each film are named, which excludes additional editors, supervising editors, etc.[1][2] The actual winner of the Best Editing award is selected by "Chapter Voting"; only Academy members who are identified as members of the Editing Chapter vote on the winner. The BAFTA procedure is essentially the reverse of that of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, in which members of the Editing Branch of the Academy select the nominees, but all members of the Academy vote to select the winner; see the article Academy Award for Film Editing.



(There were six films nominated for this award in 2008, instead of the usual five, because of a tie in the voting)

  2. The nominees in each award category are determined by two rounds of voting. In the first round, each member is given a list of all eligible films, and votes for twelve films in each category of the awards. Up to fifteen films that received the largest number of votes in each category are on the second round ballot. The five films in each category receiving the largest number of second round votes become the nominees.
