Tarantino makes the cut for ACE


Quentin Tarantino will receive the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award at the 57th annual Eddie Awards ceremony, set for Feb. 18 at the Beverly Hilton.

Tarantino was voted the honor by the board of directors of the American Cinema Editors, which said in announcing his selection, "His rich and original body of work represents the best that our creative community has to offer. He has also been a proud and vocal supporter of the contributions of editors to filmmaking and shares a long and close relationship with editor Sally Menke, A.C.E., with whom he has collaborated on seven films."

Tarantino's most recent features include the two "Kill Bill" movies as well as "Sin City," on which he was billed as special guest director. Along with Robert Rodriguez, he directed "Grindhouse," which the Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films will release April 6.

The awards dinner will also honor John Soh and Frank J. Urioste with career achievement awards
