2019 MPSE Golden Reel Awards: ‘A Quiet Place’ wins over Oscar frontrunner ‘First Man’

A Quiet Place,” won the top prize, Sound Editing (Effects and Foley), at the Golden Reel Awards bestowed by the Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) on Sunday. One of its Oscar rivals for Best Sound Editing, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” picked up up a pair of awards (dialogue & ADR, musical) while another, “Roma,” won one (foreign language). “Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse” claimed both the animated and music awards.

The Oscar frontrunner in this below-the-line race, “First Man,” was shut out at these awards as was the fifth  nominee, “Black Panther.” But fans of “First Man” should not be too disheartened. This guild’s track record at predicting the eventual winner at the Academy Awards is spotty.

Last year, all five of the Oscar nominees for Best Sound Editing numbered among the MPSE contenders. Eventual Oscar winner “Dunkirk” lost the category equivalent  to “Blade Runner 2049.” The WWII epic did win for music over the sci-fi film. And both films lost the dialogue & ADR race to “War for the Planet of the Apes,” which was snubbed by the sound branch of the academy.

The 66th annual edition of these awards took take place on February 17 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Sound wiz Stephen H. Flick was honored for his lifetime of achievement and Antoine Fuqua received the Filmmaker Award.
