2012 Oscar Predictions: Sound Mixing Contenders as the Cinema Audio Society Announces their Nominees


Cinema Audio Society 2012 nomineesTwo categories I have yet to predict in my Oscar predictions are Best Sound Editing and Sound Mixing, primarily because I’ve been waiting for the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) and Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) to weigh in with their nominees. Today, the CAS delivered and I’m expecting the results from the MPSE today or tomorrow as we are now only a few days away from the Oscar nominations.

As for the CAS noms, over the last five years there has been a pretty good track record of the nominees matching Oscar’s nominees. From 2006-2009 the nominees matched four out of the five Oscar nominees. Last year, however, was a bit different as only two of the five nominees matched.

This year, I’m aiming for four of the five nominees to match once again as my only difference is I have Transformers: Dark of the Moon in my top five over Moneyball. Just on the outskirts I have War Horse, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Artist.

My pick to win at this point is Hugo, but I have Super 8 in a very close second.
