Conrad Albinus Nervig (June 24, 1889 – November 26, 1980) was an American film editor with 81 film credits.[1]

He began work in 1922 at Goldwyn Pictures, and remained with the studio after its merger to form Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) in 1924. He spent essentially his entire career at MGM, retiring from the studio in 1954.[2][3]

Nervig was the first recipient of the Academy Award for Film Editing for the film Eskimo (1934). He won a second "Oscar" (shared with Ralph E. Winters) for the film King Solomon's Mines (1950). He was also nominated for his work on A Tale of Two Cities (1935).
