Eddie Hamilton, editor of Top Gun: Maverick, and Paul Rogers, editor of Everything Everywhere All at Once, received prizes for best edited dramatic film and comedic feature, respectively, at the 73rd Eddie Awards presented by American Cinema Editors on Sunday.
For the Oscar in film editing, Jonathan Redmond and Matt Villa for Elvis, Monika Willi for Tár, and Mikkel E.G. Nielsen for The Banshees of Inisherin are nominated, as well as Everything Everywhere and Top Gun: Maverick, which won the BAFTA in film editing.
Everywhere’s got everything. When he remembered cutting the movie while the school was in lockdown, Rogers praised his mentors, close friends, and family, particularly the Daniels. With the words “We can select what stories we get to tell,” he also promoted diversity. Colleagues accepted, reading gratitude to those who attended without Hamilton, including Chris McQuarrie and Tom Cruise.
On Sunday at UCLA’s Royce Hall, Erin Casper and Jocelyne Chaput won the theatrical feature documentary competition with Fire of Love, and Ken Schretzmann and Holly Klein won the animated feature award for their work on Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio.In the categories for series episodes, Eddie winners included John M. Valerio for the “Arrivederci” episode of The White Lotus; Simon Smith for the “One Way Out” episode of Andor; and Stephanie Filo, Bradinn French, Taylor Joy Mason and S. Robyn Wilson for the “Save My Edges, I’m A Donor” episode of A Black Lady Sketch Show.
“There are not many post teams that look like us,” said Filo of the Black Ladies Sketch Show‘s team of Black editors. “We hope to see so many more that look like us.”
