‘Interstellar,’ ‘Guardians’ Among Cinema Audio Society Nominees

Interstellar,” “American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Unbroken” have been selected as the nominees for best sound mixing for a live-action film by the Cinema Audio Society.

The sound mix for “Interstellar” had generated complaints that loud music overwhelms dialogue in scenes, but the filmmakers asserted that was their intention.

Winners will be unveiled on Feb. 14 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.

Nominees for best mixing for an animated film include “Big Hero 6,””The Boxtrolls,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” “The Lego Movie” and “The Penguins of Madagascar.”

The group also announced nominations Tuesday in four television and two technical categories.
