Spielberg pix sound great at MPSE’s Golden Reels

Steven Spielberg continued his domination of the awards circuit Saturday as sound editors for “Schindler’s List” and “Jurassic Park” topped the list of the 41st annual Motion Picture Sound Editors’ Golden Reel awards at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

“Schindler’s List” won the Automated Dialogue Replacement editing nod for a feature pic. Chief ADR editor Larry Singer, along with ADR editors Andrea Horta and Allen Hartz, collected the Golden Reel statuettes.

“Jurassic Park,” with its panoply of dinosaur squeals, took home the sound editing award for supervising sound editor Richard Hymns and his staff.

The MPSE awards are given for excellence in sound and ADR editing. They are voted on by the 350-plus members of the org.

MPSE prexy Sandy Berman, in a rousing opening speech, denounced the film and TV industry for relegating sound editors “pell-mell into obscurity.”

“Not to belittle anyone else’s job, but … work that sound editors do just might be a bit more essential, just might have a bit more influence on what ultimately ends up on that screen than, say, set security or stand-by honeywagon driver,” he said.

Samuel Michael Horta, a longtime animation sound editor for everything from “Mr. Magoo” to “Garfield,” was honored with the lifetime achievement award.

Other Golden Reels awards included:

ADR editing in a TV half-hour series:”The Wonder Years: Reunion,” Kevin P. Burns, ADR supervising editor; Mark Cleary, Charles Bruce, ADR editors.
