Cinema Audio Society Announces Nominations

'Black Swan,' 'Inception' and 'The Social Network' sound mixing teams are among the film nominees; 'The Pacific' is tops in TV categories.

Sound mixing moved to the forefront Thursday as the Cinema Audio Society revealed its nominees for the 47th annual CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for 2010.

In the motion picture categories, nominations went to the mixing teams behind Black Swan, Inception, Shutter Island, The Social Network and True Grit.

HBO's war-torn miniseries The Pacific dominated the television movies and miniseries category. Four individual episodes captured four of the five available slots, with the fifth slot going to the HBO TV movie Temple Grandin.

In the TV series category, nominations were bestowed on episodes of 24, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, Glee and Modern Family.

In the category devoted to nonfiction, variety or music TV (series or specials) the nominees are Baseball: The Tenth Inning -- Bottom of the Tenth; Deadliest Catch: Redemption Day; Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould; Great Performances at the Met: Armida; and Lennon NYC.

In the final category, DVD original programming, nominations were earned by the mixing teams behind 30 Days of Night: Dark Days; Calvin Marshall; Lost Boys: The Thirst; Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back; and Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue.

The winners will be announced at a dinner Feb. 19 in the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.

That evening, the CAS will present its highest honor, the CAS Career Achievement Award, to production sound mixer Jeffrey S. Wexler. Its Filmmaker Award will be given to director and Directors Guild of America president Taylor Hackford.
