Sound edit noms mulled

Seven contenders for Oscar kudos

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Monday unveiled seven films being considered for the sound editing Oscar: “Finding Nemo,” “Kill Bill Vol.1,” “The Last Samurai,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” and “Seabiscuit.”

On Jan. 20 the sound editing committee will view a 10-minute clip reel from each. The members will then vote, resulting in one of three scenarios:

If two or three receive the required votes, they will be nominated; if only one film receives the required votes, it will be recommended to the Acad board for a Special Achievement Award; if no film achieves the required votes, no award will be given in the category.

If there are nominees, they will be announced along with other contenders Jan. 27.

Oscars will be presented Feb. 29 at the Kodak Theater.
