One thing was pretty certain going into Friday night's Ace Eddie Awards ceremony honoring the best in editing: "Boyhood" was an odds-on lock to win the drama prize, and is, as ever, the frontrunner to win the Oscar in the category. So that happened. With "Birdman" tearing up the guild circuit, though, certainly plenty of us had an eye on it coming out on top in the comedy field, despite a lacking Oscar nod. Alas, that didn't happen. "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which was nominated for a film editing Oscar, came out on top. Cue more "what does it all mean" dialogue. It doesn't mean that much, though. There used to be a stat some folks would cling to re: Ace's place in the Best Picture build, but "12 Years a Slave" (nor "Gravity," for that matter) didn't win there.

Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel took the respective top prizes for drama and comedy tonight at the 65th American Cinema Editors Awards. Oscar snubee The Lego Movie continued to rack up awards-season wins, scoring the trophy for Best Edited Animated Feature Film, while Citizenfour added the Ace Eddie to its winning streak for documentary feature.
The ceremony, hosted by 24 actress Mary Lynn Rajskub at the Beverly Hilton, saw Grand Budapest check in with the upset win over Birdman, which was edited to look like it was shot in a single take and came into the Ace Eddies with strong momentum, having won top honors at both the PGAs and the SAG Awards last weekend. The category had the usual five nominees, but this year’s dramatic feature field was notable for a tie that resulted in six nominees — only the second time the American Cinema Editors has had to »

Screen Actors Guild voters broke their pattern of repeat television winners in many cases Sunday night. Indeed, none of this year's individual champs had won for these current roles before. Of the newly-declared champs, Uzo Aduba ("Orange is the New Black") and Mark Ruffalo ("The Normal Heart") have their first career SAG trophies. Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder"), William H. Macy ("Shameless"), Frances McDormand ("Olive Kitteridge"), and Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards") had previous victories but for different film and TV projects. -Break- Related: Complete list of 2014 SAG Awards winners The cast of "Orange is the New Black" knocked off four-time reigning champ "Modern Family" as Best TV Comedy Ensemble.

Not many actors can say that they’ve voiced a character in the most successful animated Disney film of all time and then had sex against a tree on TV.

In the modern age of anonymous internet criticism and constant tabloid attention, it's hard for actors to succeed these days, at least according to Julia Roberts.

"I think it was easier back when I was starting, probably than it is now," Roberts, 47, told Anderson when asked what the odds are of young actors making it in the industry. "People were nicer, I think."
"There's just a lot of anonymity now for critiquing people and pretending that you know people, and I think that that becomes complex," Roberts explained. "There are just a lot of people who hide."

Every year, stars get together at the SAG Awards to congratulate each other on how awesome they all are with a lavish, unhosted ceremony that speeds along at a quick pace because everyone wants to get their naked man sculptures and hit up the after parties.
Because of the ceremony's weird place in the awards season – after the Oscar Nominations have been announced but before the Oscars actually take place - and the Golden Globes-esque mingling of television and film stars, sometimes the show can get real weird, real quick.
