‘Social Network’ Wins Best Edited Award

American Cinema Editors (ACE) tonight announced the winners for the 61st Annual ACE Eddie Awards recognizing outstanding editing in nine categories of film, television and documentaries. Winners were revealed during ACE’s 61st annual black-tie awards ceremony in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Christopher Nolan received the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award, while Career Achievement honors were bestowed on veteran film editors Michael Brown, A.C.E. and Michael Kahn, A.C.E. Director Joe Sargeant presented to Brown, with Steven Spielberg presenting to Kahn. The ACE Eddie Awards is considered an integral precursor to the Oscars; no film has won Best Picture at the Oscars without also having received at least a Best Editing nomination since Ordinary People in 1981. Since the ACE membership boasts a very high crossover within its membership of Academy members, it is considered a very accurate bellweather for the eventual Oscar outcome:
