Bohemian Rhapsody” followed up love from Cinema Audio Society sound mixers with a pair of honors at the Motion Picture Sound Editors’ 66th annual Golden Reel Awards Sunday night. The musical biopic scored wins for dialogue and ADR as well as sound editing in a musical.

The film is nominated for sound editing at the Oscars along with “First Man” and two other films that received Golden Reel Awards: “A Quiet Place” and “Roma.”

TV prizes went to FX’s “The Americans” and “Atlanta,” Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” HBO’s “Westworld” and Netflix’s “Altered Carbon.”

There were a pair of ties: In feature documentary, “Free Solo” and “They Shall Not Grow Old” locked horns. For episodic short form music/musical work, “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” and “Vikings” ended up in a dead heat.
