ACE Eddie Awards

The ACE Eddie Awards named Thelma Schoonmaker and Janet Ashikaga this year’s Career Achievement honorees, the group announced today. The awards will be held Jan. 27, and honor the best in film, TV and documentary editing.

Schoonmaker most recently worked on Martin Scorsese’s “Silence.” She has seven Oscar nominations and three wins for “Raging Bull,” “The Aviator” and “The Departed.”

Ashikaga is a prolific editor in television. She has 10 Emmy nominations and four wins for her work on “Seinfeld” and “Sports Night.”

“Janet Ashikaga and Thelma Schoonmaker have helped create some of the most iconic films and television programs in entertainment,” the ACE Board of Directors said today in a statement. “And while their resumes alone are deserving of recognition and celebration, their commitment to the film editing community and shining a light on the craft of film editing is also noteworthy. For these reasons and more, we are thrilled to honor them with Career Achievement awards for their indelible contributions to the craft and community of film editing.”

The group previously announced J.J. Abrams as the recipient of the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year award.
