As our odds predicted, "Les Miserables" won the prize for Best Sound Mixing bestowed by the Cinema Audio Society. After previously snagging the equivalent award last week at BAFTA, it seems like a shoo-in to reap the Oscar next, especially given voters' notorious love of musicals in that category.
"Brave" pulled off an upset in the inaugural race for sound mixing in an animated feature edging out frontrunner "Wreck-It Ralph."
