“King Richard” was crowned with an ACE award as the best-edited feature film Saturday at the 72nd annual American Cinema Editors (ACE) Eddie Awards.

After the COVID-19 pandemic forced last year’s ACE Awards to a virtual format, this year’s ceremonies returned to in-person — appropriately, at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The Eddies recognize editors in more than a dozen categories, including feature films, documentaries and television.

Saturday’s show featured DJ and actor Lance Robertson — a/k/a DJ Lance Rock — hosting.

Presenters included Debbie Allen, Andy Garcia, Oscar-winning filmmaker Chloé Zhao, Oscar nominee Aunjanue Ellis, “King Richard” director Reinaldo Marcus Green and Oscar nominee Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, among others.

The show was live-streamed — but with a $50 ticket fee — at americancinemaeditors.org/.

The ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award was presented to the Sundance Institute, while career achievement awards were presented to Lillian E. Benson and Richard Chew.
