Steven Spielberg’s dramatic film Lincoln has been racking up award nominations, and now the American Cinema Editors Board of Directors have chosen the acclaimed director to receive their ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award. Spielberg will pick up the award at the 63rd Annual ACE Eddie Awards ceremony on February 16, 2013.
 
Announcing the award, the ACE Board of Directors stated: “Steven Spielberg is a cinematic treasure. For over four decades he has been moving audiences around the world with his unique, powerful brand of storytelling. As one of the most successful directors in history, he has brought us beloved films, which have not only delighted us but have been indelibly woven into our cultural fabric. Throughout it all, he has worked side by side with the great Michael Kahn, A.C.E., forming a director-editor partnership that has lasted decades. It is our pleasure to recognize him with the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year honor, especially in a year where he has, once again, created a masterpiece with his latest film, Lincoln.”
