‘Dreamgirls’ hits high note

Cinema Audio Society sings praises of film, TV

“Dreamgirls” won top honors for sound mixing in a motion picture at the 43rd annual Cinema Audio Society Awards on Saturday night.

In television, “Flight 93” drew kudos for movie or miniseries, while “Deadwood” earned the series nod for episode “A Two-Headed Beast.” “Paul McCartney: The Space Within Us” took home the award in the television nonfiction category.

“Ultimate Avengers: The Movie” drew kudos for achievement in DVD original programming.

Edward J. Greene took the career achievement award. Greene, who has mixed variety and award shows, music, and live drama for television, is the recipient of 19 Emmys.

“I look at it a bit differently than others,” explained the veteran. “The better (the picture) looks, the better it sounds. And the better it sounds, the better it looks.”

Gilbert Cates was feted with the society’s filmmaker award. Cates, whose credits include the film version of the Broadway show “I Never Sang for My Father,” and “Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams,” said his deep respect for sound came while making his first movie, a silent in which he remembered thinking, “Wouldn’t it be great if we actually heard the gunshot?”

Technical achievement nods for production and post-production technologies went to Sound Devices 744T Recorder and Digidesign Pro Tools (V7.2 software), respectively.

Ceremony was held at Los Angeles’ Millennium Biltmore Hotel.
