What kind of Oscar love will Christopher Nolan’s Inception receive? I think we are definitely looking at Best Picture, Director and Original Screenplay consideration above the line. Below the line you can pretty much run straight down the line and perhaps never stop. One thing I’d say it certainly has a shot at is the sound design and mixing and, as usual, SoundWorks Collection has put together another impressive featurette this time featuring Inception supervising sound editor and sound designer Richard King, re-recording mixer Lora Hirschberg and re-recording mixer Gary Rizzo.

If you’re interested in how the dream world of Inception was brought to your ears, check out the following six-and-a-half-minute featurette, and also be sure to stay up-to-date on other Oscar candidates at my exclusive “The Contenders” section of the site.

If you haven’t yet weighed in with your interpretation of the film do so right here. The discussion is getting lengthy so be sure your take is heard.
