Oscars 2013 Update: MPSE Awards
The Motion Picture Sound Editors announced their awards last night.
There are a lot of categories, so let’s run through them quickly:
Best Sound Effects + Foley went to Gravity. This is basically the main award, keeping Gravity as your frontrunner to win the Oscar.
Best Dialogue + ADR went to Captain Phillips. This is expected. Gravity wasn’t winning this unless there was going to be an obvious sweep.
And then here’s a rundown of the lesser categories that don’t matter for the award:
Best Animated Sound Editing went to Epic, Best Foreign Language Sound Editing went to The Grandmaster, Best Music in a Musical Feature went to Frozen, Best Music in a Feature went to The Great Gatsby, and Documentary Sound Editing went to Dirty Wars.
Your Oscar category is Gravity, Captain Phillips, The Hobbit, All Is Lost and Lone Survivor, and at this point, it seems ludicrous that anything other than Gravity is going to win it.
