Cinema Audio Society Likes the Sound of 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' 'Lone Survivor'

“Captain Phillips,” “Gravity” and “Iron Man 3” also receive nominations for CAS Awards

“Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Iron Man 3” and “Lone Survivor” have been nominated for motion-picture sound mixing by the Cinema Audio Society, the CAS announced on Tuesday morning.

All five films are considered strong contenders in the Oscar sound-mixing category. “All Is Lost,” “The Hobbit,” “Rush” and “12 Years a Slave” are among the films bypassed by CAS voters but in the running for Oscar nominations.

In the animated feature category, which is only in its second year, nominees were “The Croods,” “Despicable Me 2,” “Frozen,” “Monsters University” and “Walking With Dinosaurs.”

Television nominations went to the movies or miniseries “American Horror Story,” “Behind the Candelabra” and “Bonnie and Clyde,” the hour-long shows “Breaking Bad,” “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead” and the half-hour shows “Modern Family,” “Nurse Jackie” and “The Office,” among others.

The Cinema Audio Society is a non-profit organization that honors the art of sound mixing in film and television. The other group that gives awards for sound, the Motion Picture Sound Editors, will announce its nominations on Friday.

Since 2000, almost 75 percent of the films nominated for CAS Awards have gone on to receive Oscar nominations for sound mixing.

Only three of the five CAS nominees landed Oscar nods last year, but “Les Miserables” won the award at both ceremonies.

The awards will be handed out on Feb. 22 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. The Career Achievement Award will be presented to veteran re-recording mixer Andy Nelson, while a CAS Filmmaker Award honoree will be announced later this week.
