Celebs come out for ACE Eddie Awards

Movie stars Amy Adams, Javier Bardem and Aaron Eckhart gathered Saturday at the Beverly Hilton to honor the editors who make them look so good. Or, in the case of the evening’s host, so small.

“You may know my penis from such movies as ‘The Hangover,'” said Ken Jeong, kicking off the 61st annual ACE Eddie Awards. “I have a great respect for the editing craft,” he added. “I love nerds.”

Leo Trombetta, winner for editing HBO’s “Temple Grandin,” revealed the dilemma of every editor: “We spend hours laboring so that our work doesn’t draw attention to itself, and then we’re upset when we’re not mentioned in the reviews.”

Eckhart presented Christopher Nolan with the Golden Eddie Filmmaker Award, and noted, “He possesses 100% USDA — or whatever the British equivalent — guts.”
