Giardina will receive the Robert Wise Award, which recognizes a journalist whose writing has elevated public consciousness of the role of editing in the filmmaking process.

Of the honorees, the ACE Board of Directors said in a statement: “It’s not only their tremendous contributions to film, television and journalism that warrant recognition, it is their tireless dedication to their craft.”

As previously announced, producer Frank Marshall will be honored with the Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award.

The ACE Eddie Awards will be held on Friday, Jan. 30 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
