Yesterday the American Cinema Editors Society announce the nominations for the 2017 EDDIE Awards and believe there are no surprises as the awards season has and could continue to honor the same films with nominations and awards. Sigh.
Nevertheless the most interesting news come from who will be honored with the ACE Filmmaker of the Year Award as is none other that J. J. Abrams.
“J.J. Abrams is a once-in-a-generation artist who has been making his mark in cinema and television for over twenty years,” stated the ACE Board of Directors. “Through his production company, Bad Robot, J.J. has engaged and delighted audiences around the world with his innovative brand of storytelling.
Whether he’s reinventing a beloved franchise or creating something entirely new and groundbreaking — be it Star Trek, Star Wars, Westworld, Lost, Alias and many others — his name is synonymous with nothing less than spectacular entertainment. He is one of the most exciting voices working in our industry, and we’re thrilled to celebrate his body of work thus far.”
