Oscars 2016: CAS Nominations

Our next shortlist today is the one that’s easiest for me to deal with. Cinema Audio Society. AKA Sound Mixing. We all love us some sound mixing, don’t we?

Quick, what’s the difference between sound editing and sound mixing? Yeah, I know. That’s like when people ask you if you think their baby is cute. And you have to on the spot try not to look like an idiot because you think the baby looks like a garden gnome in a onesie.

Sound mixing is the entire sound design of the film. We’ll deal with sound editing when we get to it. Basically all you need to know this year for sound mixing — this is the one that includes musicals. Which means that La La Land ain’t gonna lose.

Here are your CAS nominees:

Doctor Strange

Hacksaw Ridge

La La Land

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


Cool, cool. La La Land isn’t gonna lose. Though now the idea is to figure out what could get nominated instead of this, since obviously this won’t be your exact Oscar list. It never is.

Oh, and I guess they had animated nominees too. Finding Dory, Kubo, Moana, Secret Life of Pets and Zootopia. Whatever. Animated movies don’t get on this list for the Oscars, so it’s irrelevant.

I’m not even gonna speculate on alternatives now, since a lot of stuff can happen or change or be nominated. But for now — cool.

La La Land is gonna win this category. Have I made that abundantly clear yet?
