ACE Awards


By Sam Molineaux
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl were top scorers at the 54th annual ACE Eddie awards, at the Beverly Hilton, Feb. 14.
Rings’ editor Jamie Selkirk, who won the award for best edited feature film (dramatic) was all smiles. “It’s especially great to be recognized like this by your peers,” said the cheery New Zealander. Sharing the top prize were editors Craig Wood, Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E. and Arthur Schmidt for Pirates, which sailed home in the best edited feature film (comedy or musical) category.
In the TV category, Peter Chakos outpaced the competition in the best edited half-hour series for television category, for Will and Grace “Last Ex to Brooklyn”; fortune shone down on John Bloom and Antonia Van Drimmelen for Angels in America, Part 1, which won best edited miniseries or movie for non-commercial television; Mark Conte, A.C.E. reigned supreme in the best edited miniseries or movie for commercial television category for Caesar, Part 2; and it was Scott Powell, A.C.E.’s day, winning the Eddie for best edited one-hour series for television for 24 “10pm–11pm.”
Best edited documentary award went to Yana Gorskaya for Spellbound, and Sheridan Institute of Technology student Thomas Berger earned the ACE student award.
Princess Diaries stars Julie Andrews, Anne Hathaway and Hector Elizondo reunited to present producer, director and writer Garry Marshall with the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year award. The 54-year-old organization also recognized the lifetime achievements of editors Donn Cambern, A.C.E. and John A. Martinelli, A.C.E., and presented the Robert Wise Award to The Hollywood Reporter’s technology journalist Sheigh Crabtree.
