“Dune,” “No Time to Die,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “The Power of the Dog,” and “West Side Story” were nominated Tuesday for the 58th annual Cinema Audio Society Awards for live action sound mixing (to be held live-in person March 19 at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown). All five are shortlisted for sound Oscar contention, which also includes “A Quiet Place Part II,” “Belfast,” “Last Night in Soho,” “The Matrix Resurrections,” and “Tick Tick Boom.”

In terms of an Oscar predictor for the category (which combines both sound editing and mixing), there is definite overlap between the MPSE and CAS with these five nominees. However, the frontrunning “Dune,” “A Quiet Place Part Two,” “The Matrix Resurrections” and “No Time to Die” dominated the MPSE competition.

The sonic power and complexity of Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” is going to be hard to beat. Its great achievement is creating a grounded reality that is both innovative and believable. So, rather than relying on over-hyped sounds, the teams conveyed an otherworldly palette that is hallucinatory yet gritty, from supernatural voices that rattle the mind to colossal sandworms that shake the sand dunes of Arrakis.

“No Time to Die” is the first Bond film to be mixed in Atmos, and director Cary Joji Fukunaga wanted sound editors Oliver Tarney and James Harrison to utilize the larger soundscape for Daniel Craig’s swan song. The Aston Martin DB5 opener in Matera is a great example.

Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog” (Netflix), the psychological western about toxic masculinity, explores a visceral soundscape around the natural world. The sound team emphasizes ordinary details for dramatic effect, such as the pounding hooves of a cattle drive, the stirring wind, the slap of a horse’s flank, and the hum of a stream.

"West Side Story"

For Steven Spielberg’s remake of “West Side Story,” the sound mixing team went for a combo of live vocals captured during filming and studio-captured audio played back during shooting. For smaller, more intimate scenes, such as the wedding, featuring the song “One Hand, One Heart,” actors (including Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler) sang live. To achieve the correct voice volume for the scene blocking and camera location, the team used a combination of boom and wireless mics and wireless to capture audio.

Animation nominees went to Disney’s “Encanto” and “Raya and the Last Dragon,” Pixar’s “Luca,” Netflix/Sony’s “The Mitchells vs. the Machines,” and Universal/Illumination’s “Sing 2.”

Documentary nominees included “Becoming Cousteau,” “Summer of Soul,” “The Velvet Underground,” “Tina,” and “Val.”

Ridley Scott will receive the CAS Filmmaker Award, and re-recording sound mixer Paul Massey (“Bohemian Rhapsody” Oscar winner) will be honored with the CAS Life Achievement Award. Additionally, Five finalists are vying for the Student Recognition Award.
