The American Cinema Editors board will present the director of Captain Phillips with the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award. 

The award will be presented at the 64th Annual ACE Eddie Awards ceremony on February 7 in Los Angeles.

“Paul Greengrass is one of the most exciting film-makers working in cinema today,” said the ACE board. “A Greengrass film simply has its own signature – from the magnificent hand-held camera work, to his ability to engage audiences with riveting storytelling, his canon of work is bold and iconic.”
