This year's Eddies, the world's foremost editing awards, were presented at the weekend, with Pamela Martin winning Best Edited Feature Film: Drama for King Richard. Making sporting action work onscreen is a challenge for any editor and combining this with strong work in conversational scenes demonstrates impressive range. The Best Edited Feature Film: Comedy award went to Myron Kerstein and Andrew Weisblum for tick, tick...Boom! which combines dramatic character interactions with musically choreographed routines.

Jeremy Milton won in the Animation category for Disney hit Encanto, while the Documentary award went to Joshua L Pearson for Summer Of Soul......Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised. Michelle Satter accepted the prestigious ACE Golden Eddie Award - recognising an artist or company for distinguished achievement in film - on behalf of The Sundance Institute.

Founded in 1950, American Cinema Editors (ACE), which awards the Eddies, is made up entirely of people who work or have worked in this profession, so award recipients know that they have won the admiration of their peers.
