Paul Greengrass to Receive American Cinema Editors’ Filmmaker of the Year Award

The award will be presented at the 64th Annual ACE Eddie Awards on Feb. 7

“Captain Phillips” director Paul Greengrass will be feted by the American Cinema Editors with its filmmaker of the year award.

The Golden Eddie will be presented at the 64th Annual ACE Eddie Awards on Feb. 7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. ACE will also recognize outstanding editing in nine categories of film, TV and doc.

“A Greengrass film simply has its own signature — from the magnificent hand-held camera work, to his ability to engage audiences with riveting storytelling, his canon of work is bold and iconic,” the ACE board of directors said in a press release. “His latest film, ‘Captain Phillips,’ is a masterwork yielding some of the finest filmmaking of the year.”

Past honorees include Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, James Cameron, Clint Eastwood, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese.

“Captain Phillips,” which follows the 2009 hijacking of a U.S. ship by Somali pirates, was nominated for four Golden Globes, nine BAFTAs and a Directors Guild of America award. All three included a best director nom.

Greengrass earned an Oscar nom for direction for “United 93.” He also directed the films “Green Zone,” “The Bourne Supremacy” and “Bloody Sunday,” in addition to his work on the British TV series “The Murder of Stephen Lawrence,” “The Fix” and “Open Fire.” His partner Christopher Rouse has edited all of his features since 2002.
