Oscars 2018: CAS Nominations

Okay, the shortlist you’ve all been waiting for has been announced. BEST SOUND MIXING!

Oh, what, you thought you were getting the DGA list first? Nah. You gotta eat your salad and then you’ll get the main course.

The Cinema Audio Society also announced their nominations today, so we’re gonna talk Best Sound Mixing as well.

Sound Mixing, to remind you if you’re not all up on your categories, is the entire sound design in the film. Musicals do great here, as do war movies. Basically, if you assume Dunkirk and Baby Driver and probably Star Wars, then you’re most of the way there already. (And this is before I’ve even seen the list.)

Here are your CAS nominees for this year: (more…)

Oscars 2017: CAS Awards

The Cinema Audio Society announced their awards tonight as well. In an over three-hour ceremony, they produced exactly one category of note for our purposes. Which is for Best Sound Mixing.

The winner was Dunkirk, which pretty much cements that as the winner of at least one of the two Sound categories at the Oscars. But you already probably knew that.

That’s the last precursor, guys. You now have all the information you need to guess what’s gonna win next Sunday. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already 35,000 words into my giant picks article, but what can I say, this is my favorite thing to do each year. I can’t help it if I’m nuts.

See you guys on Sunday.

Oscars 2014: CAS Awards

The Cinema Audio Society handed their awards out tonight.

That’s Sound Mixing, for those who don’t know. And Sound Mixing is the entire sound design of a film, for those who don’t know. Not the creation of the sounds, but rather everything you hear when you experience a movie.

The CAS category and the Oscar category matched 4/5, with both having Birdman, Interstellar, Unbroken and American Sniper, and CAS having Guardians of the Galaxy with the Oscars having Whiplash as the fifth nominee.

Which means that whatever wins is most likely a good bet to take the category at the Oscars. (more…)
