Four of the five Oscar nominees for Sound Editing -- "Argo," "Django Unchained," "Life of Pi" and "Skyfall" -- contend for the top Golden Reel Award bestowed by the Motion Picture Sound Editors. The fifth Oscar contender -- "Zero Dark Thirty" -- was snubbed by the MPSE. 

The other nominees for this MPSE prize -- Best Sound Editing: Sound Effect and Foley in a Feature Film -- are: "The Avengers," "The Dark Knight Rises," "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "Prometheus."

Overall, "Argo," The Hobbit," "Life of Pi" and "Skyfall" reaped three bid apiece at the 60th edition of these kudos. They also contend in categories for dialogue & ADR and music. 

Winners will be announced during a Feb. 17 ceremony at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Ang Lee will receive the filmmaker award and Foley artist John Roesch will be feted for career achievement.

Last year, "War Horse" won this precursor prize" but lost the Oscar to "Hugo." The other Oscar nominees were "Drive," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon."

"Super 8," which led with three MPSE bids, won dialogue & ADR. It was snubbed by the Oscars in both sound categories.

In 2010, "Inception" won two of its three bids -- sound effects & foley and music -- while "The Social Network" won dialogue & ADR. "True Grit," which won 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.
