One award show we never miss is the annual Eddie Awards, responsible for recognizing outstanding editing in film, TV, and documentaries. This year, “triple threat” writer, director, and producer Nancy Meyers, whose credits include “What Women Want” (Mel Gibson), “Something’s Gotta Give” (Jack Nicolson and Diane Keaton), and “The Intern” (Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway). Ms. Meyers, who was honored as Filmmaker of the Year, received her award from friend and collaborator Steve Martin, who starred in “Father of the Bride,” which she produced.

“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Big Short,” and “Inside Out” were the big winners of the night, recognized as the Best Edited Films of the Year. TV winners included “Inside Amy Schuler,” “Mad Men,” and “House of Cards.” Among the score of editors honored were Carol Littleton and Ted Rich, who received Career Achievement Honors.

Bravo to the over 800 members of American Cinema Editors for advancing the prestige and dignity of the editing profession. These unsung heroes are to be congratulated for their achievement in increasing the entertainment value of motion pictures

Finally, the Living Legends of Aviation are people of extraordinary accomplishments in aviation, including entrepreneurs, industry leaders, astronauts and celebrities who have become pilots. They meet yearly to honor individuals that have made significant contributions to aviation.

This year, John Travolata, “Official Ambassador of Aviation,” hosted the event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, as Stacey Eisner, executive director of Kiddie Hawk Air Academy, welcomed the honored guests.

Among these were former Aviation Legends Harrison Ford, Arnold Palmer, Buzz Aldrin, Tom Cruise, and Kurt Russell, to name a few. On the distaff side was Princess Tarinan von Anhalt, who is known for her distinct “jet art.” Von Anhalt is the first woman to challenge the jet stream’s fierce velocity and scorching heat and creates her own unique expressionist paintings. As the petite princess states: “$10 million plus jets are my paint brushes; and tarmacs are my ateliers around the world.”

She has taken her jet art from airport runways to fashion extravaganzas from Palm Beach to Palm Springs, and has been featured around the world on major networks and publications. Most recently, she was featured in the Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine. Maybe next year, Princess Tarinan will be a Legend of Aviation herself!
