Academy taps sound f/x hopefuls

Seven pix nommed for three finalist slots

VISIT ACADEMY CENTRAL

Seven films will vie for nominations for the sound effects editing Oscar, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Friday.

The list includes four pics released by Warner Bros.: “Any Given Sunday,” “The Green Mile,” “The Matrix” and “Three Kings.”

Fox’s “Fight Club” and “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace” also made the cut, as did Universal’s “The Mummy.”

The category has no fixed number of nominees.

To nominate pics, the Sound Effects Editing Award Nominating Committee will view 10-minute clips from each of the seven pics on Feb. 8. Committee members can nominate up to three of the seven contenders, recommend a single pic for a special achievement award or decide that no award be given in the category.

Nominated films will be announced along with those in 23 other categories on Feb. 15.
