‘The Social Network’ And ‘Alice In Wonderland’ Bring Home Eddies

Sunday, February 20 by

“What’s an Eddie?” I can almost hear you thinking silently to yourself. Apparently you have no appreciation for the soul of cinema, the editor, because an Eddie is short for the ACE Eddie Awards, which commend excellence in editing. Or as its known now, “computering.”

Here’s a rundown of the awards, which I edited myself by removing the student category:
