Cinema Audio Society Likes the Sound of ‘Ford v Ferrari,’ ‘Joker,’ ‘The Irishman’

Most of the CAS nominees typically go on to receive Oscar nominations, which is also good news for ”Rocketman“ and ”Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood“

AWARDS BEAT

“Ford v Ferrari,” “Joker,” “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” “Rocketman” and “The Irishman” have been nominated as the best sound mixing of 2019 at the Cinema Audio Society’s 56th annual CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing.

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 in the animated-feature category went to “Abominable,” “Frozen II,” “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” “The Lion King” and “Toy Story 4,” while documentary noms went to three music films – “Echo in the Canyon,” “Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool” and “Woodstock: 3 Days That Changed Everything” – along with the NASA chronicle “Apollo 11” and, fittingly enough, the doc about motion-picture sound, “Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound.”

“Game of Thrones,” “Stranger Things,” “Barry,” “Russian Doll,” “Chernobyl” and “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” were among the television nominees.

The winners will be announced at the CAS Awards on Jan. 25 at the InterContinental hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Also at that show, the Cinema Audio Society Career Achievement Award will be presented to Tom Fleishman and the CAS Filmmaker Award to James Mangold.
