52nd Annual CAS Awards Winners

Last night the guild had their awards ceremony and by this late in the award season is no surprise that top film award went to The Revenant or top film animation award went to Inside Out. After many pundits predicted an interesting and "unexpected" awards season, it has become a very predictable (and boring) season. Sigh.

To check TV categories go official site here.  Winners are in *BLUE.

A few moments ago the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) announced the nominees for the current edition of the awards that honor Outstanding Achievements in Sound Mixing in film and television as well as Technical Achievement in production and post-production.
