‘A Quiet Place,’ ‘Roma,’ ‘First Man’ Lead Sound Editing Nominations

“Mission: Impossible – Fallout” also received multiple MPSE Golden Reel Awards nominations; “Westworld,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” among top TV shows with sound editors

“A Quiet Place,” “Roma,” “First Man” and “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” led all films with three nominations each for the 66th Annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards, which were announced on Friday. The awards are handed out by the Motion Picture Sound Editors, a nonprofit organization of professional sound and music editors.

In the category of Feature Film – Effects/Foley, the Golden Reel category that most closely corresponds to the Oscars’ Best Sound Editing category, the nominees were “A Quiet Place,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Black Panther,” “Deadpool 2,” “First Man,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” “Ready Player One,” “Roma” and “The Favourite.” But because the MPSE has so many different sound-editing categories, and because those categories often contain eight or nine nominees, the Golden Reel Awards tend not to be helpful in forecasting Oscar nominees.

In the television categories, the shows that received multiple nominations include “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Vikings,” “Westworld” and “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.”

The MPSE Golden Reel Awards will take place on Feb. 17 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
