Oscars 2016: MPSE Nominations
And the Motion Picture Sound Editors announced their nominees. Too little, too late, as always. Now we’re doing is looking at them to see how closely they matched the nominations we already know.
Let’s do a quick rundown of them:
Dialogue + ADR: Arrival, Deadpool, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, Lion, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Sully
Effects + Foley: Arrival, Captain America: Civil War, Deadpool, Deepwater Horizon, Doctor Strange, Hacksaw Ridge, The Jungle Book, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Music: 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Arrival, Doctor Strange, Don’t Breathe, Hacksaw Ridge, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Trek Beyond, Warcraft
Musical: Florence Foster Jenkins, La La Land, Moana, Sing Street, Trolls
Animation: Finding Dory, Kubo and the Two Strings, The Little Prince, Moana, The Red Turtle, Sing, Zootopia
So based on this, I’d have guessed Arrival, Hacksaw, Rogue One, Sully and probably Deepwater. Which I did. And then I’d have been wrong because La La Land managed to get on.
I always hate that they don’t announce beforehand, but honestly, there are so many nominees, you don’t really get so much help out of them. Mostly it’s confirming what you already knew and you’re still guessing for 1-2 of them.
