Helmer Robert Zemeckis and Walter Murch presented the CAS lifetime achivement award to Randy Thom, director of sound design at Skywalker Sound. Thom received a standing ovation as he thanked his presenters, saying, “I’m deeply touched by what you said, mostly because you stole what I was going to say,” referring to their comments on working together in “Apocalypse Now.”

Director Henry Selick accepted the org’s filmmaker kudo from sound mixer Agamemnon Andrianos and “Coraline” star Dakota Fanning, joking that in the time it took him to make one film, “she’s made eight.”
