Ben Affleck's thriller Argo continues to be the talk of the award season after taking home another top honour at the American Cinema Editors' Eddie Awards.

Affleck's editor William Goldenberg landed Best Edited Feature Film - Dramatic at the 63rd annual ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Lincoln filmmaker Steven Spielberg was presented with the ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year trophy at the special event.

In his acceptance speech, Spielberg said: "Editing and directing are almost interchangeable... I've always looked at the editing room as the safe haven of second chances... Editors, everybody here: You are my heroes."

Jay Cassidy won in the Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy Or Musical) category for Silver Linings Playbook, while Brave editor Nicolas C. Smith was also honoured.
