Oscar 2007: Sweeney Todd and Bourne Ultimatum Win Editing Awards

February 18, 2008–At Sunday's 58th annual ACE EDDIE Awards, “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “Sweeney Todd” received top honors for feature film, winning the drama and comedy/musical categories respectively.

HBO dominated the 2 major TV categories with wins for “The Sopranos” in the hour-long series category and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” in the half hour series category. Celebrating its 18th year on the air, “Cops” nabbed the EDDIE for non-scripted reality series — beating out recent primetime powerhouse “Dancing With The Stars.”

Michael Moore, who presented the Eddie for feature film (comedy or musical), watched his “Sicko” editors Geoffrey Richman, Chris Seward and Dan Swietlik win honors in the docu category.

Carl Reiner presented Academy Award winning director Norman Jewison with the ACE Golden EDDIE filmmaker of the year award — the ceremony's highest honor.

Vet editors Millie Moore and Bud Smith each received Lifetime Career Achievement awards.

Stand-up comedian Patton Oswald (“Ratatouille”) served as the evening's emcee.
