    Very quiet on the ad front this week – the only BP contender taking sizeable ads in the LA and NY Times is Philomena, pushing hard to get into the race for the win.

    “We all know” – really?

    I take it you are new to following Oscar races.

    … Aren’t YOU the one who created a thread just 2 days ago going over why Gravity wouldn’t win the Oscar?

    Finally got around to watching the directors roundtable. It was fascinating to see the likes of Greengrass, O. Russell and Daniels all show Curaon & McQueen so much respect.

    Is Gravity really going to take BOTH sound awards?

    Sound mixing seems like a safe bet because that one in the past few years has gone to the huge-scope films (Les Mis, Inception) but sound editing doesn’t really have a trend or a certain “type” of film that it goes to. I could see Captain Phillips getting its due there.

    Actually, sound mixing has trends. Films about music and films about inhospitable enviroments/catastrophes tend to win. This gives an edge to Gravity and Inside Llewyn Davis.

    I was talking about sound editing. I mentioned the trends in sound mixing.

    Sound mixing is given to the best mixing of sound with picture (a.k.a the best incorporation of sound into a film), so it makes sense that big visual epics and musicals win here.

    Sound editing is for the best use and management of sound and sound effects, so movies with gun fights and explosions (and occassionally heavy gusts of wind and moving parts in factories/on robots) are the bait here. So I actually think Captain Phillips is a safe bet for that one. Maybe Lone Survivor.

    Oh, sorry. Yeah, sound editing doesn’t have much a trend. Action tends to do well here, but not always. The winners also seem to be more concept driven than on mixing. 

    Either way, Gravity is really the frontrunner for both categories.

    I don’t know, Captain Phillips feels like the kind of movie that wins here, and has to win something overall. But then again I’m oredicting Hustle to go 0-10 so I guess Phillips can go 0-6.

    I was thinking about this awhile back. It might be easy to forget, but there is no sound in space. I would not be at all surprised if Gravity loses both sound categories. In fact, I suspect it will if it loses the top prize, though I don’t think that’ll happen.
