MPSE Golden Reel Awards Nominees

MPSE_Logo

The Motion Picture Picture Sounds Editors (MPSE) Golden Reel Awards are one of my “secret” favorites. I have this fantasy that one day I’d love to learn to be a sound editor for film and video. I have pretty much zero experience in the matter and no way to fund an education, so it’s a complete pipe dream. Still, a man can dream, can’t he? A man can dream…

For a reminder on the difference between Sound Editing and Sound Mixing, check out my explanation on Cinema Audio Society (the sound mixers guild) nominations post.

The MPSE gave Gravity and 12 Years a Slave the lead with 3 nominations apiece. But the biggest news out of this list is the shocking ZERO nods for Rush. That’s unfortunate, and unexpected. I had been predicting it to get an Oscar nod (see my Oscar Predictions post). But after coming up short with both the sound editors AND mixers guilds, now I’m not so sure.
