January 21, 2009: Richard Donner to Receive ACE Award

HollywoodReporter.com reports that the American Cinema Editors will honor producer-director Richard Donner with its ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award.

    "Richard Donner is one of the most successful and well-respected filmmakers in this industry," the ACE board of directors said. "His incredibly varied body of work includes films that have been engaging, inspiring and entertaining audiences for over 40 years. He single-handedly created a new genre when he directed 'Superman,' reinvented a genre with 'The Omen' and created two of the most successful film franchises in Hollywood history with the 'Lethal Weapon' and 'X-Men' films. His love and respect for the craft of editing is well-known, so it gives our organization great delight to present him with our highest honor for his tremendous achievements."

Lauren Shuler Donner, his wife and producing partner, will present the award to him at the 59th annual ACE Eddie Awards on Feb. 15 at the Beverly Hilton.
