Nominee reaction: Kevin Tent

Film editing, 'The Descendants'

Although it had been almost five years since they’d last worked together, “The Descendants” editor Kevin Tent said he felt perfectly in sync with Alexander Payne once they reunited in the editing room.

“I had worked with him on all of his films and have always really gotten along with him,” Tent said. “Even though it had been five years it was kind of like riding a bike — we just jumped back on and acted like (only) a day had passed since the last time we worked together.”
