The Saturn Award for Best Editing (originally Saturn Award for Outstanding Editing) is one of the annual awards given by the American Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. The Saturn Awards, which are the oldest film-specialized awards to reward science fiction, fantasy, and horror achievements (the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation is the oldest award for science fiction and fantasy films), included the category for the first time at the 5th Saturn Awards, for the 1977 film year.[1]

The Award was deleted after being awarded again in 1978, but was reactivated at the 38th Saturn Awards in 2011. Paul Hirsch, who won the award a first time in 1977 for Star Wars, won it again 34 years later for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.[2]
