'The Hurt Locker' sounded like a winner to CAS

February 28, 2010 | 12:58 pm

Cinema_audio_society_slumdog_millioThe Cinema Audio Society honored "The Hurt Locker" with its top prize at its 46th annual awards fest Saturday night. This year, four of the five Cinema Audio Society nominees for sound mixing are contending at the Oscars, with just "District 9" being replaced by "Inglourious Basterds."  Both last year and in 2008, three of the five CAS picks for sound mixing were Oscar nominees as well.  

"Slumdog Millionaire" won with both the CAS and the Oscars last year. However, the trend has been for two films to split these prizes. The 2008 CAS champ was "No Country for Old Men" and the Oscar went to "The Bourne Ultimatum." And though "Dreamgirls" took both prizes in 2007, in each of the previous four years the CAS winner lost at the Oscars. (In 2003, CAS winner "Master and Commander" lost the sound-mixing Oscar to "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King," but it won the prize for sound editing.)

Three TV genres were also saluted by the CAS on Saturday, with "Grey Gardens" winning TV movie, "Mad Men" taking the series award and "Deadliest Catch" prevailing in the catch-all nonfiction, variety or music special or series race.
