American Cinema Editors held its annual holiday party on December 7 in Los Angeles. As part of the night’s festivities, the organization presents new inductees into the ACE. Sesame Street editor Jesse Averna, who helps run the weekly Twitter conversation #PostChat, was among them.
Averna (@dr0id), a four-time Emmy winner for his work on Sesame Street, was presented with a plaque from Oscar-winning editor Alan Heim (All That Jazz, Network, American History X, The Notebook). Averna was invited into the ACE as an Affiliate Member. While Averna notes that Active membership is his ultimate goal, he fully acknowledges the great honor of this induction, stating, “Tonight I received one of the biggest honors of my career — induction into ACE as an Affiliate member.”
