José Salcedo Palomeque (c. 1949 – 19 September 2017) was a Spanish film editor with over 120 feature film credits.[1][2] He had an extended collaboration with the director Pedro Almodóvar, having edited all of Almodóvar's films from 1980 until his death.[3] Almodóvar himself has been called Spain's "most famous director since Luis Buñuel."[4]

Salcedo had been nominated many times for Goya Award for Best Editing, and won the award three times: for Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988), Nobody Will Speak of Us When We're Dead (1995), and All About My Mother (1999). He was honored with the 2017 Gold Medal of the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas de España, which is the Spanish academy that awards the Goyas.[2]
