Jay Mohr has been set to host the 55th annual ACE Eddie Awards, to be held Feb. 20 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The American Cinema Editors noted its choice is apropos since its Golden Eddie honoree, James L. Brooks, gave Jay his breakthrough role in “Jerry Maguire.”
ACE prexy Alan Heim promised the show would run less than two hours.
Greg Kinnear will present the Golden Eddie to Brooks.
Other presenters include Sandra Oh, presenting with her husband and “Sideways” director, Alexander Payne, a former ACE student internship award winner; Teri Polo; Penny Marshall; and the cast of “Desperate Housewives.”
