“A Quiet Place,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” were among the winners at the Motion Picture Sound Editors’ 2019 Golden Reel Awards, which recognize sound editing in film, television, computer media and special venue work.

“Spider-Verse” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” each won in two of the MPSE’s seven feature-film categories. “Spider-Verse” won for animated feature and for sound editing of a musical score, while “Bohemian Rhapsody” won for sound editing in a musical and for dialogue and ADR.

“A Quiet Place” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” are also nominated for the sound-editing Oscar, along with “Black Panther,” “First Man” and “Roma.”

On Saturday night, “Bohemian Rhapsody” won the other major guild or professional award for sound, the Cinema Audio Society’s CAS Award for sound mixing.
