'Life Of Pi' Wins Pair of Sound Editors' Awards

"Skyfall," "Les Miserables" and "Wreck-It Ralph" win one trophy each in MPSE feature categories.

"Life of Pi"

Sound editing teams from Life of Pi won two awards in the feature film categories at the Motion Picture Sound Editors’s 60th MPSE Golden Reel Awards, Sunday at the Westin Bonaventure.

Life of Pi was honored in dialogue and ADR editing and music editing. Also in features, sound editing teams from Skyfall topped the category of sound effects and Foley editing, and Les Miserables for music editing in a musical.

STORY: 'Life of Pi' Director Ang Lee to Be Honored by Sound Editors

Life of Pi and Skyfall are nominated for the Oscar in sound editing, along with Argo, Django Unchained, and Zero Dark Thirty.

During the Golden Reel Awards, the sound editors of Wreck-It Ralph received the award for sound editing in an animated feature.

In the television categories, Games of Thrones had the most wins, with two awards.

Life of Pi director Ang Lee was honored with the Filmmaker Award. It was presented by Life of Pi editor Tim Squyres, visual effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer and director of photography Claudio Miranda.

Foley artist John Roesch received MPSE's Career Achievement Award, which was presented by last year's recipient, Charles L. Campbell. Roesch is the first Foley artist to receive this honor. He additionally had two Golden Reel nominations this year, for his work on The Dark Knight Rises and Rise of the Guardians.

Supervising sound editors Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl (Argo) awarded a scholarship to James L. Morgan in the name of the late sound editor Mike Hopkins, who won Oscars for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and King Kong (both of which he received with Van der Ryn).

Also during the evening, the sound mixing of Oscar-nominated animated short Head Over Heels was honored in MPSE's student competition.
