Anne Hathaway to fete Jonathan Demme at CAS Awards
Though busy picking up awards herself, "Les Miserables" star Anne Hathaway is taking time Saturday to present Jonathan Demme with the Filmmaker Award at the Cinema Audio Society kudos. Demme directed Hathaway to her first Oscar nomination for "Rachel Getting Married" in 2008. He is no stranger to Oscar himself having helmed “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991) which became the third film to sweep the top five races, including Best Picture and Director.
The CAS Awards, now in their 49th year, honor the very best in sound mixing.
Legendary sound mixer Christopher Newman, winner of three Oscars for Best Sound (“The Exorcist” (1973), “Amadeus” (1984), and “The English Patient” (1996)), will receive the CAS Career Achievement Award. Newman was also nominated for “The French Connection” (1971), “The Godfather” (1972), “Fame” (1980), “A Chorus Line” (1985), and “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991).
The collaborations between Newman and Demme span decades: In addition to “The Silence of the Lambs,” Newman also served as sound mixer on Demme’s “Married to the Mob” (1988), “Philadelphia” (1993), “Storefront Hitchcock” (1998), “The Manchurian Candidate” (2004), and “Neil Young: Heart of Gold” (2006). How fitting that the two should be honored for their achievements in the art of motion picture sound together.
