ACE Eddie Awards pushed back, moved in light of COVID surge

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and rising case numbers, American Cinema Editors announced Wednesday a one-week delay in its 72nd annual ACE Eddie Awards, along with a change of venue and reduced attendance to allow for social distancing.

The ceremony was originally scheduled for Feb. 26 at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. The event will now be held March 5 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Theatre at the Ace Hotel for the 72nd Annual ACE Eddie Awards, with added safety precautions due to the recent spike of COVID numbers,” ACE Executive Director Jenni McCormick said in a statement. “We are planning for a 50% capacity in-person event, as the safety of all attendees is of the utmost importance to us.

“We are monitoring the situation and should we deem it necessary, we are prepared to make the Eddies completely virtual this year. We are also working alongside our counterparts at the Art Directors Guild to avoid any overlap in our ceremonies.”

Nominations for the awards, which honor outstanding editing in film and television, will be announced Jan. 27.
