Oscar-winning film editor Anne V. Coates dies at 92

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Oscar-winning film editor Anne V. Coates, whose many credits include such disparate films as “Lawrence of Arabia,” ”The Elephant Man” and “Fifty Shades of Grey,” has died. She was 92.

A representative from Coates’ talent agency WME Entertainment said Wednesday that she passed away Tuesday at the Motion Picture Country Home and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California.

Coates loved her work so much that she waited until she was nearly 90 to retire.

Coates received an honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement in November 2016. She also won an Oscar for 1962’s “Lawrence of Arabia.”
