The famed British film editor Anne V. Coates began her career as an assistant on “The Red Shoes” in 1948 and two years ago was an editor on “50 Shades of Grey.” In between she was nominated for five Academy Awards and won an Oscar for “Lawrence of Arabia.” Just this year awarded an honorary Oscar known as “the Governor’s Award” by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, she was introduced at the ceremony by Nicole Kidman and presented with her Oscar by Richard Gere. Miss Coates’ other films include “The Pickwick Papers,” “The Horse’s Mouth,” “Beckett,” “In the Line of Fire” and “Unfaithful.” She edited “Out of Sight” and “Erin Brokovich” for director Steven Soderbergh.
