Ms. Littenberg has been nominated for the ACE award in the Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy or Musical) category for her outstanding editing of the movie, Easy A,  a 2010 teen comedy written by Bert V. Royal, directed by Will Gluck, and starring Emma Stone.  Screen Gems distributed the movie beginning on September 17, 2010 (2010-09-17), and,,,,,, and it was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc December 21, 2010.

Well-known USA Today reviewer Claudia Puig reviewed Easy A and commented, “Easy A not only makes the grade, but it comes in close to 100%....The film is full of sharp wit that stops short of snark. And like any good movie, it transcends its genre.” On December 14, 2010, Emma Stone was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the category of Best Actress (Comedy/Musical) for her portrayal of Olive in Easy A.  Film editing, an art practiced quietly behind the scenes, plays an important part in making stars appear at their best. On January 14, Easy A won in the category of Best Comedy Feature Film at the Critics Choice Awards.

Susan Littenberg’s remarkable Hollywood career, now in its twenty-first year, has included the editing of many feature films.   One of them was the live-action/computer-animated Charlotte’s Web, which received a 2006 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Family Film in the live-action category.  Ms. Littenberg has worked with Gary Winick, director of Charlotte’s Web, on three other films, Tadpole, Bride Wars, and 13 Going on 30.

Other feature films that Susan completed last year include a documentary about Spalding Gray called And Everything Is Going Fine, and $5 a Day starring Christopher Walken.

Susan lives in Los Angeles with her husband Michael and new born daughter Charlotte. She is the daughter of Abe Littenberg, of Lincroft and Linda Robin-Levine, of Chadds Ford, Pa.

Congratulations to Susan Littenberg on her outstanding career and the special honor this nomination represents.
