'American Sniper,' 'Birdman,' 'Unbroken' win 2015 MPSE Golden Reel Awards

Posted by · 9:04 pm · February 15th, 2015

The Motion Picture Sound Editors' (MPSE) 62nd annual Golden Reel Awards honored a full spread of films Sunday night. “American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Unbroken,” “Get On Up” and “Big Hero 6” all walked away with hardware.

At the Oscars, “Sniper,” “Birdman” and “Unbroken” are up against “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” and “Interstellar.” “Birdman” won the Cinema Audio Society's mixing prize Saturday and could well win both sound fields. Or it could split with “Sniper,” or Clint Eastwood's war film could take both, etc. Lots of options seem evident. (And the sound categories, by the way, are the only places for “Unbroken” fans to speak up.)
