GRAVITY, Captain Phillips, Frozen and The Great Gatsby all won awards on Sunday night at the Motion Picture Sound Editors’ 61st Golden Reel Awards, which honoured sound editing in seven film and 10 television categories.
Gravity won in the Sound Effects and Foley category, the Golden Reel area that most closely corresponds to the Oscars’ Best Sound Editing category.
Golden Reel winners in that category have gone on to win the Oscar six times in the last 10 years, and 12 times in the last 20.
Captain Phillips won for its dialogue and ADR (additional dialogue recording), The Great Gatsby for its music editing and the Disney animated film Frozen for music editing in a musical feature.
Epic won in a separate category for sound effects, foley, dialogue and ADR in an animated feature, while The Grandmaster and The Past both won awards for a foreign-language feature and Dirty Wars won for a documentary feature.
Oscar nominees in the Sound Editing category are Gravity, Captain Phillips, All Is Lost, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and Lone Survivor.
In the television categories, Game Of Thrones won two awards, making it the only show to win more than one. Breaking Bad, Sons Of Anarchy, The Bridge and the documentary The History Of The Eagles also won TV prizes.
The ceremony took place at the Westin Bonaventure in downtown Los Angeles. Sound designer and rerecording mixer Randy Thom was given the MPSE’s Career Achievement Award, while the show also included a special tribute to inventor Ray Dolby, who died last September. – Reuters
