‘Star Wars,’ ‘Hateful Eight,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Walking Dead’ Score Cinema Audio Society Nominations
After being passed over by every guild and industry group so far this season, “The Hateful Eight” finally caught a break Tuesday with a nomination from the Cinema Audio Society, celebrating excellence in sound mixing. The film joined “Bridge of Spies,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant” in the live action motion picture category, all three of which have performed well with organizations like the Art Directors Guild, the American Society of Cinematographers and the Producers Guild of America in recent weeks.

The fifth spot went to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” an on-again, off-again player on the circuit this season with mentions from the American Cinema Editors and the art directors and costume designers guilds. That left Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” as the surprise exclusion for a group that, it should be noted, has a slightly different makeup than the Academy’s sound branch, featuring a wider

Awards Season Continues With Visual Effects, Sound Mixing And Makeup Nominations

Today was a busy day for some of the smaller guilds with the Visual Effects Society, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Makeup and Hairstylists Guilds all announcing their nominations for 2013.

First, we have the Ves, whose main category to look at is “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture,” where we find Gravity and four other nominees that are just going to have to be happy with the fact that they got nominated. This is perhaps the easiest category to call in the entirety of awards season, and I don’t mean just here, but for the Oscar as well (Last year’s winner, Life of Pi, easily took this category before going on to claim the Oscar). It’s true that films like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Star Trek Into Darkness had outstanding effects as well, but nothing even came close to the amazing,

Cinema Audio Society Noms Zig Where Others Zag

Cinema Audio Society Noms Zig Where Others Zag
The Cinema Audio Society noms mostly follow the broad award season trends — but the differences are doozies.

The Cas noms for live action motion picture include “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “Lone Survivor,” but for their final nominee, the org tapped a pic that isn’t getting a lot of awards love this season: “Iron Man 3.” Marvel’s pic made it over such other tentpoles as “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and such awards darlings as “American Hustle.”

The Cas recognizes outstanding achievement in sound mixing. The Motion Picture Sound Editors’ Golden Reel Awards highlight sound editing.

The Cas noms for animated feature, a category added last year, went to “The Croods,” “Despicable Me 2,” “Frozen,” “Monsters University,” and then, once again, to a less ballyhooed title: “Walking with Dinosaurs.”

The TV races will give “Behind the Candelabra,” yet another chance at a statuette, in the movie & minis category,
