“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:

So for all you potential editors and editoresses out there, keep this moment in mind and don’t forget to cut back to it when you need a little inspiration. Sorry, I can’t do much with editing jokes, come on. (via Variety)
