‘Super 8’ leads Motion Picture Sound Editors nominees

“Super 8” reaped three bids for the 59th annual awards of the Motion Picture Sound Editors. On Wednesday, it figured among the five contenders for the top prize in sound mixing from the Cinema Audio Society.

While the CAS fetes only one film, the MPSE has a variety of categories. “Super 8” contends in: dialogue and ADR; music; and sound effects and foley. “Drive,” “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” all picked up a pair of nominations.

Last year, “Inception” won two of its three bids — sound effects & foley and music — while “The Social Network” won dialogue & ADR. “True Grit,” which over the Cinema Audio Society for its sound mixing, was shut out.

At the Oscars, “Inception” prevailed over “Toy Story 3,” “TRON: Legacy,” “True Grit” and “Unstoppable.” In 2009, “Avatar” won the same two MPSE races as “Inception” but lost the Oscar race to “The Hurt Locker.” Among the other also-rans was “Inglorious Basterds” which had won the dialogue & ADR award at the MPSE.

The kudos are on Feb. 19 at the Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Sound designer and editor George Watters II will be feted for career acheivement while producer Gale Anne Hurd is to be honored with the Filmmaker Award.
