Pic ‘Masters’ sound kudos

'Commander' wins top sound editors award

The Motion Picture Sound Editors handed out kudos in 19 categories at the 2003 Golden Reel Awards Saturday night at the Century Plaza Hotel.

Feature awards were presented by this year’s Cinema Audio Society career achievement award winner — and seven-time Oscar winner — Gary Rydstrom and three-time Oscar winner Charles L. Campbell.

The sound f/x editing nod went to “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.”

Mouse House and subsidiary Miramax took home two trophies apiece. Disney received awards for dialogue editing in a feature (“Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”) and music editing in an animated feature (“Finding Nemo”). Miramax garnered kudos for sound editing in a foreign film (“City of God”) and music editing (“Cold Mountain”).

Other feature pic winners include “The Triplets of Belleville” for sound editing in an animated pic and “A Mighty Wind” for music editing in a musical feature.

In TV, HBO led the pack with three kudos. “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself” received two trophies (sound effects editing, dialogue editing in longform television), while “Six Feet Under” received one (dialogue editing in episodic TV).

Nickelodeon followed closely, collecting both TV animation awards — for sound editing and music editing — which went to “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius” and “SpongeBob SquarePants,” respectively.

In other episodic TV kudos, CBS’ “CSI” won for sound effects editing and NBC’s “American Dreams” won for music editing.

ABC’s “The Music Man” took the trophy for music editing in longform television.

Other sound editing kudos include “Top Speed” for special venue film, “T3: Rise of the Machines” for computer entertainment and “Bionicle: Mask of Light” for direct-to-video.

Manny Holihan, from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, received the Verna Fields Award for sound editing in a student film for “Teratoma.”

Helmer Arthur Hiller presented the career achievement award to veteran sound editor and founding MPSE member Don Hall. Hall’s sound editing career spans three decades and includes such credits as “Young Frankenstein,” “Single White Female” and a restoration of “The Bridge on the River Kwai.”

The Golden Reel Awards not only acknowledge the work of supervising sound editors, but also dialogue, ADR, Foley and music editors, noted MPSE prexy David Bondelevitch. “For many, this is the only time when the contribution of the entire sound crew is truly recognized,” he said.
