Every guild and professional organisation in filmmaking has its awards ceremony and this weekend saw the turn of the American Cinema Editors Eddie Awards and the Art Directors Guild Excellence In Production Design bash. American Hustle, Captain Phillips and Frozen scored at the former, while Her and The Great Gatsby were among the winners at the latter.

In a real example of spreading the love around, the editors picked Captain Phillips’ Christopher Rouse for dramatic feature, while Jay Cassidy, Crispin Struthers and Alan Baumgarten shared the Comedy Or Musical Feature gong for American Hustle. In the Animated category, Frozen’s Jeff Draheim won.

Captain Phillips was shown even more love as the ACE gave director Paul Greengrass its Filmmaker Of The Year trophy, which was handed over by star Tom Hanks. 20 Feet From Stardom team Douglas Blush, Kevin Klauber and Jason Zeldes took home the Documentary award.

The art directors, meanwhile, singled out The Great Gatsby’s lush staging for the period film gong, which was collected by Catherine Martin. Gravity’s Andy Nicholson won fantasy film and K.K. Barrett scored his first ADG trophy for Her’s vision of the future. Martin Scorsese got Visionary Of The Year, with his Wolf Of Wall Street stars Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio on hand to present.
