Supervising sound editor and sound designer Harry Cohen, a frequent collaborator with Quentin Tarantino with credits including The Hateful Eight, will be honored with the Motion Picture Sound Editors' Career Achievement Award, during the 64th Golden Reel Awards on Feb. 19 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles.

His work with Tarantino also has included Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds and Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2. Cohen also has worked alongside such directors as Oliver Stone, Ridley Scott, Rob Marshall and, most recently, Peter Berg on Deepwater Horizon. In all, he's worked on more than 150 movies and TV shows and earned 18 Golden Reel nominations, winning the award in 1999 for A Texas Funeral. In 2000, Cohen received an Emmy nomination for the NBC series The Others.

“Harry is an endlessly resourceful and imaginative artist who is always inventing new ways to use sound to tell stories,” MPSE president Tom McCarthy said Thursday in a statement. “He has enriched the moviegoing experience for audiences worldwide. We are very pleased to honor the creativity and dedication of a sound pro who embodies the spirit of the MPSE and its members.”
