Cinema Audio Society Nominations 2016

Winners will be revealed on Feb. 20.

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 range of production mixers along with the post-production artisans.

In the animated category, nominees were “The Good Dinosaur,” “Hotel Transylvania 2,” “Inside Out,” “Minions” and “The Peanuts Movie.”

On the television side, “American Crime” joined “American Horror Story: Hotel,” “Fargo” and “True Detective” in the movie or mini-series category, while series nominees included “Better Call Saul,” “Grame of Thrones,” “The Walking Dead,” “Nurse Jackie” and “Veep.”

Winners will be revealed at the 52nd annual Cinema Audio Society Awards on Saturday, Feb. 20.
