2007 - Ranked #32 on EW's The 50 Smartest People in Hollywood.


When she won her first Best Film Editing Academy Award for Raging Bull (1980), the Oscar was presented to her by Jane Seymour and Richard Pryor (Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles / March 31, 1981).


Worked mainly as an editor for Martin Scorsese, who had tried for years to convince her to work for him. She was unable to work in Hollywood, however, because she couldn't get into the union. When Scorsese called to ask her to work on Raging Bull (1980), she again demurred because of lack of union membership. However, she believes that Al Pacino got her into the union. To this day, she does not know what influence was used to gain her union membership.


All of her editing credits--except two--for feature films and documentaries were for films that were directed by Martin Scorsese. She has won all three of her Oscars as well for editing Scorsese pictures. The exceptions are the music documentary Woodstock (1970) and feature Grace of My Heart (1996). She worked with Scorsese on both of these; he was an editor on "_Woodstock (1970)_qv)" and producer of "Grace of My Heart (1996)".
