Oscars 2015: Cinema Audio Society Nominations
CAS has announced their nominations. They’re the guild for Sound Mixing. Meaning the entire sound mix, not just the compiling of sound effects and such.
This is one of three guild nominees today, and is the easiest of the three to talk about, so let’s just get into it.
Here are your CAS nominees for 2015:
Bridge of Spies
The Hateful Eight
Mad Max: Fury Road
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Honestly, swap off Bridge of Spies for The Martian, and that seems likely. Though The Martian could end up only with Editing and not Mixing, so maybe that is actually right.
Sicario would make some sense, but again, maybe that’s only Editing and not actually Mixing.
Right now, I’d say you have a real good shot at 4/5 on this one based solely on this category. I’m still formulating my guesses for tomorrow, so we’ll see what happens when I actually sit down and put some thought into this particular category.
