The Social Network
The Social Network took home the top prize at the 61st annual American Cinema Editors' Eddie Awards.
Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter, editors of the film about Facebook, won in the dramatic feature category, while Alice in Wonderland's Chris Lebenzon nabbed the musical or comedy category. Ken Schretzmann and Lee Unkrich took the trophy in animated feature competition for Toy Story 3.
Inception director Christopher Nolan received the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award, while editors Michael Brown and Michael Kahn were presented the organization's Lifetime Career Achievement Awards.
The King's Speech tops British Film Awards
Kahn won three Oscars and three Eddies for editing Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan. Brown took home Emmys for the HBO films Something the Lord Made, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and Miss Evers' Boys.
The Eddies often predict the Oscar winner for best picture; over the last five years the top Eddie winner and best-picture Academy Award winner have matched except in 2007. That year The Bourne Ultimatum won both the Eddie and Oscar for editing, but No Country for Old Men took home the best-picture Oscar.
