The nominations for this year’s Motion Picture Sound Editors‘ 63rd annual Golden Reel Awards have been revealed and Irish Sound Editor Niall Brady and Dialogue Editor Peter Blayney have been nominated in the category of Best Sound Editing (dialogue and ADR in a Feature film) for their work on Lenny Abrahamson’s Oscar nominated film ‘Room’.
The MPSE Golden Reel Awards recognise excellence in an array of sound editing achievement, from sound effects and foley to dialogue and ADR to music and score integration, with the winners set to be announced at an awards ceremony at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites in Los Angeles on February 27th.
Speaking on his nomination this morning, Niall said: “It’s fantastic to be recognised for this award and to be a representative of the great sounding work that my colleagues and I at Ardmore Sound and Screen Scene Sound are doing, special mention must go to Steve Fanagan and Ken Galvin, the re-recording mixers on ‘Room’, and Peter Blayney.”
“Of course this nomination isn’t even a flight of the imagination without the incredible work of Lenny Abrahamson, Emma Donoghue, Ed Guiney and all at Element Pictures, and A24.″
