“Inception” grabs another technical prize

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: The last few organizations are handing out their pre-Oscars awards, from Hollywood cinematographers and editors to the industry’s top sound engineers.

On Sunday, the Motion Picture Sound Editors handed out several of their Golden Reel Awards to Christopher Nolan’s summer blockbuster “Inception.” The Leonardo DiCaprio-headed thriller won two awards for best sound editing in the categories of sound effects and foley and music in a feature film, THR reports.

Nolan didn’t dominate the evening. David Fincher’s “The Social Network” scored the prize for best sound editing in the category for dialogue and ADR in a feature film, while the animated feature film “How To Train Your Dragon” won best sound editing in an animated feature.

THR notes that “Inception” was “the only sound editing Oscar nominee to win at the Golden Reels Awards. Also nominated for an Oscar in sound editing are ‘Toy Story 3,’ ‘Tron: Legacy,’ ‘True Grit’ and ‘Unstoppable.’”

During Sunday’s ceremony, Hollywood icon Walter Murch (“The Godfather Part II,” “Apocalypse Now”) received the MPSE award for Career Achievement. “Star Wars” creator George Lucas was on hand to present to Murch – they collaborated on “THX 1138” and “American Grafiti” in the 1970s – and said to the gathered crowd, “Sound is half of the experience of a motion picture … the sound editor should start working the same day the editor starts working.”
