The Saturn Award for Best Editing (originally Saturn Award for Outstanding Editing) is one of the annual awards given by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films. The Saturn Awards, which are the oldest film-specialized awards to honor science fiction, fantasy, and horror on film (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 in 1978.[1]

The award was discontinued after being awarded again at the following ceremony, but was reactivated at the 38th Saturn Awards in 2012. Paul Hirsch, who won the inaugural award for Star Wars (1977) in 1978, won it again 34 years later for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011);[2] he is currently the only person to have won it twice.[3]
