HOLLYWOOD — New Line’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings” took home the Cinema Audio Society’s top film award Saturday, while HBO’s “Six Feet Under” took sound mixing kudos for a television series.
Mixers Christopher Boyes, Michael Semanick, Gethin Creagh and Hammond Peek accepted for “Rings,” and Pete Reale, Roberta Doheny and Richard Van Dyke accepted on behalf of “Six Feet Under,” which kicked off its second season last week.
“When Dinosaurs Roamed America” was honored as the top TV variety or music series special, and the telepic or miniseries nod went to “Band of Brothers Part 2.”
CAS also paid tribute to Oscar-winning sound editor Kay Rose (“The Rose,” “The River”), who was presented with the career achievement award, and Ed Somers, who was honored with a CAS President’s Award for his 15 years of service.
Somers has served as a production sound manager, a service manager for Location Sound Corp. and as president of the Cinema Audio Society.
The 38th annual event was held at the Sheraton Universal.
