A surprise turn of events swept the 57th annual American Cinema Editors' Eddie Awards. Not two but three films were deemed best edited because of a tie in the feature film drama category, which resulted in two winners instead of one.
Paramount Vantage's Babel and Warner Bros. Pictures' The Departed tied for the top drama honor, while Paramount Pictures' Dreamgirls, from DreamWorks, took home the prize for best edited feature film, comedy or musical.
The awards ceremony took place Sunday evening at the Beverly Hilton.
As they accepted their award, Babel editors Stephen Mirrione and Douglas Crise, both first-time Eddie winners, thanked the filmmakers who helped bring Babel to fruition along with the film's cast. They singled out director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
"Thank you for sharing your heart with us so generously. You inspired us so much," Mirrione said.
Departed editor Thelma Schoonmaker added a fourth Eddie to her collection; she was awarded the same honor most recently in 2005 for The Aviator. Schoonmaker expressed gratitude to director Martin Scorsese for making the film so "uncompromising, so politically incorrect, and so moving."
