‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ Win at ACE Eddie Awards

“Top Gun: Maverick” topped the dramatic feature editing category at the American Cinema Editors 73rd ACE Eddie Awards, while “Everything Everywhere All At Once” won the category for best edited comedic feature during Sunday’s ceremony at UCLA’s Royce Hall.

The ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award, recognizing a filmmaker who exemplifies distinguished achievements in the art and business of film, was presented to Gina Prince-Bythewood for her body of work, including her latest film “The Woman King.”

Editors Lynne Willingham, ACE, and Don Zimmerman, ACE, were honored with career achievement awards for outstanding contributions to film editing.

Bryan Cranston presented Willingham with the Career Achievement Award. He praised her contribution to editing and said, “Lynne didn’t set out to be a trailblazer for other female editors. She has been a mentor and an inspiration to many women working in film and TV paving the way for a new generation.”

Zimmerman told the audience he had fallen into editing through a friend and realized this was for him.

With credits that include “Rocky IV” and “Heaven Can Wait,” he called editing an art form. “In collaborating with some of the greatest talent from supervisors, sound editors to music editors, they all taught me telling the story is more than just an image.

Actress and filmmaker Sanaa Lathan was on hand to present Prince-Bythewood with the Golden Eddie award. She said, “You have given us generations of girls and women of color, heroes that look like them.” Lathan added, “I have watched you prop up other artists who have fought for crews and continue to fight for equality and agency in front of and behind the camera.”

Prince-Bythewood who makes great efforts to hire women and people of color on her crew said, “I cast the best crew for the film. The difference is that I’m intentionally looking past the resume because the reality of our industry is that too many of us are locked out not because of a lack of talent but because of a lack of opportunity.”
