‘A Star Is Born’ Continues Guild Awards Sweep With Cinema Audio Society Nomination

”Black Panther,“ ”Bohemian Rhapsody,“ ”First Man“ and ”A Quiet Place“ were also nominated for the award, which goes to sound mixers


“Black Panther,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “First Man,” “A Quiet Place” and “A Star Is Born” have been nominated by the Cinema Audio Society, which announced its nominees for the 55th Annual CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing on Tuesday.

The nomination marks the eighth nod for “A Star Is Born” from a Hollywood guild  or professional society. The Bradley Cooper drama fared poorly at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but it is the only film to receive nominations from the Producers Guild, Screen Actors Guild, Writers Guild, Art Directors Guild, American Society of Cinematographers, American Cinema Editors, Casting Society of America and now Cinema Audio Society.

More than two-thirds of the CAS nominees typically go on to receive Oscar nominations in the sound mixing category. Last year, four of the five nominees did so.

Nominations for animated features went to “The Grinch,” “The Incredibles 2,” “Isle of Dogs,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” while the documentary nominees were “Fahrenheit 11/9,” “Free Solo,” “Quincy” and two films directed by Morgan Neville, “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead” and “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

In the television series categories, the nominees were “Better Call Saul,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Ozark” and “Westworld” among one-hour shows, and “Ballers,” “Barry,” “Modern Family,” “Mozart in the Jungle” and “Silicon Valley” among half-hour shows.

Other nominees include “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” “Escape at Dannemora,” “Fahrenheit 451,” “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” and “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.”

The winners will be announced at the CAS Awards on Feb. 16 at the InterContinental hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Also at that show, the Cinema Audio Society Career Achievement Award will be presented to Lee Orloff and the CAS Filmmaker Award to Steven Spielberg.
