'Argo,' 'Life of Pi,' 'The Hobbit' and 'Skyfall' lead with MPSE nominations
This year's Oscar nominees for Best Sound Editing were "Argo," "Django Unchained," "Life of Pi," "Skyfall" and "Zero Dark Thirty." Though intriguingly, even with inflated categories including eight nominees, Kathryn Bigelow's bin Laden manhunt effort failed to receive a notice in the Motion Picture Sound Editors' (MPSE) Golden Reel Awards nominations, revealed today.
All others are accounted for, and of course, the ASC brought an end to "Zero Dark Thirty"'s perfect streak of recognition from the industry awards. So nothing has been embraced all the way across the board. Par for the course in a very electric, wide-open awards season. But interestingly today, two of the films that led with nominations were "Argo" (which was a surprise nominee in both sound categories at the Oscars) and "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (which failed to pick up either sound nomination). So who knows what help this list may or may not have afforded in predicting a typical year.
Check out the full list of MPSE nominees below and, as always, keep track of all the ups and downs of the 2012-2013 film awards season via The Circuit.
