Carol Littleton, a film editor, was one of four people who received awards from the Motion Picture Academy at the recent Governors Awards. Littleton's career has included editing films such as "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial," "The Big Chill," and "The Accidental Tourist."

Littleton has been recognized for her contributions to the industry and her efforts to make film editing more diverse.

In an interview with TheWrap, Littleton discussed her career and the challenges she faced as a woman in the industry. She emphasized the importance of diversity in film editing and the need for more women and people of color in the field. Littleton also shared her experiences working on films such as "E.T.," where she had to navigate the challenges of editing a film with a child actor as the lead.

Littleton's recognition as an Honorary Oscar winner is a testament to her contributions to the film industry and her advocacy for diversity in film editing. As the third woman to receive this award, Littleton is paving the way for more women and people of color to enter the field and make their mark in the industry.
