“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 honored 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.

“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.
