Last night the guild had their awards ceremony and perhaps the most surprising event of the night was Quentin Tarantino making a surprise appearance to present the Career Achievement Award to Harry Cohen. Also receiving an annual award was Guillermo del Toro but his was given by Scott Gershin, supervising sound editor and designer, nevertheless del Toro gave an interesting acceptance speech.
Hacksaw Ridge lead with two awards in the feature categories, dialogue/ADR and effects/Foley, which makes film the front-runner to Oscars Best Sound Editing category. Have I share that to my biggest surprise -as dislike war movies- I enjoyed this movie beyond my wildest imagination? It's a very good entertaining movie with a solid structure -meaning: very well crafted- and great tech specs. Film deserves all the recognition is getting.
Winners are not yet at their official site but eventually will be here. If you can't wait for the official site check news from industry magazine here to find winners in all categories.
Winners for feature films are below in *BLUE.
Finally the last of the guilds announced its nominations and yes, not often guilds nominations come after the Academy announces its nominees but this year it happened, diluting a bit the interest on the nominees but still expecting the winners to help better guess winners at the Oscars.
As every year the Motion Picture Sound Editors present The Golden Reel Awards in which acknowledge the past year best work in various areas of sound editing: Dialogue, ADR, Effects, Foley and Music.
Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story lead the pack with three (3) nominations each. Arrival and Hacksaw Ridge are also nominated for the Academy Award sound editing, so the field is narrowed for those betting in the Oscars category.
As previously announced, honorary awards will be presented to director Guillermo del Toro, MPSE Filmmaker Award and sound editor Harry Cohen, MPSE Career Achievement Award.
