Oscars 2019: CAS Awards
Okay, second awards handed out tonight — CAS. For Sound Mixing.
The winner was Ford v Ferarri. I should point out that 1917 WAS NOT nominated at CAS, so really that was a foregone conclusion that it would probably win. I was only really looking out to see if somehow Once Upon a Time in Hollywood would win. But really the Sound categories are gonna come down to Ford v Ferrari and 1917, and the question is gonna be — as it usually does — will one film win them both or should you commit the cardinal sin and split the Sound categories?
I’m really curious to see what BAFTA does next weekend, because right now, Ford v Ferrari technically has more precursor wins than 1917 does. But BAFTA will really tell us where this is all likely gonna go come Oscar night.
Meanwhile, Toy Story 4 won their Animation award, in case there was any doubt about where that category was headed. That’s won like every single guild there is to win thus far except animation, which is its own weird thing.
Anyway, that’s Sound Mixing. DGA and ASC still to come.
