Oscar nominated  film editors Jay Cassidy  and Alan Baumgarten  joined me onstage last month for our big awards season event, The Contenders Presented By Deadline. We discussed the intricacies of the upcoming  Christmas Day release Joy as part of the panel 20th Century Fox assembled forcontenders-sold-out their presentation in front of specially invited AMPAS and key guild members who came to the all day event held this year again at the DGA Theatre. Cassidy and Baumgarten talk about their unique editor/director relationship with David O. Russell with whom they both worked previously on American Hustle and earned an Editing Oscar nomination and the ACE Eddie award for Editing in a Comedy. For Cassidy this is actually his third time around  with Russell , having also scored an Oscar nom and Eddie win for Silver Linings Playbook. To view our conversation just click on the video link above.
