No Win For Star Trek at CAS Awards February 27, 2010

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

We are in the final weekend of awards season before next week’s Academy Awards. There are two award shows this weekend, with tonight’s being the Cinema Audio Society awards for sound mixing. Once again Star Trek was nominated, but the sound mixers from Trek came home empty handed.  

 

Star Trek Sound Mixers lose to The Hurt Locker

The 46th CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing were held tonight at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Star Trek’s Sound Production Mixer Tony Johnson, along with Re-recording Mixers Christopher Boyes, Gary Summers, and Andy Nelson were nominated for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Feature Film. They were going up against the sound mixers from Avatar, District 9, The Hurt Locker, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The winners were  sound mixers Ray Beckett
 and Paul N.J. Ottosson for The Hurt Locker. More details at The Wrap.

Tonight played out similar to last weekend’s result where Star Trek’s sound editors were nominated for a number of MPSE Awards, but lost out to Avatar and Inglorious Basterds.

Star Trek’s sound mixers and sound editors are also nominated for Oscars, but the guild winners are now the clear front-runners at the Academy Awards.

White Ribbon wins for Cinematography

The American Society of Cinematographers also held their awards tonight. The cinematographers were one of two guilds that didn’t nominate Star Trek (the other being the Director’s Guild). The winner for best cinematography in a feature film went to Christian Berger for the German black-and-white film The White Ribbon. It beat Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Nine and Inglorious Basterds. For more results go to LA Times.

One more guild to go – then the Oscars
The main Award season is almost over. Tomorrow the Visual Effects Society is the last guild to hand out their honors. After that it is on to the Oscars next weekend, and later on will be the MTV and Empire awards. So far Star Trek has made history by collecting nominations at almost every award show, but the wins have been elusive.

Here is the award show scorecard, with a list of Star Trek nominations and the final result

C’est la vie!

2. S. John Ross - February 28, 2010

“And following tonight’s amazing ceremony … really, thank you everyone, you’ve been great … we’ll have a special short film narrated by Erik Estrada, entitled: From Faders to Pre-Amps: What The Heck A Sound Mixer Even Does. We think it’s really special and, it goes without saying, the mix is effing sweet.”

3. Kevin From Akron - February 28, 2010

Unfortunately I think we will have to accept the fact that Star Trek will get awards for achievement and not for story telling. While the script made us Star Trek fans happy, Hollywood will never take it as Oscar Winning material. I mean look at the awful Nemesis. We hired Oscar winning people to work behind the film and we all know how that turned out. I for one am glad that Star Trek is winning other awards(for music, SFX, etc).

4. Zebonka - February 28, 2010

Hurrr. That’s bizarre – sound design is one of the few areas in which the movie qualified as deserving of an award. Bummer :(

5. C.S. Lewis - February 28, 2010

Dear friends (not to imply you are all Quakers although some of you may be),

NuTrek was an enjoyable, even entertaining movie. Please do not allow your intense desire for new Star Trek episodes to cloud your judgment of its quality. This picture was very well made but it is not excellent. Is this not sufficient?

Sincerely,
C.S. Lewis

6. Robert H. - February 28, 2010

Star Trek 11: The Wrath of the Snubs

7. Gabriel Bell - February 28, 2010

5. Always the wet blanket, coming into show everyone the wisdom of your ways. Thanks for being so predictable.
============================
Sound was clearly the best bet for Star Trek to leave with an Oscar, but the film now seems destined to go 0-for-4 on Oscar night. Too bad. Having said that, the box office numbers, award nominations and worldwide critical praise for what absolutely was an excellent Trek film is certainly sufficient.

8. DrZoidberg - February 28, 2010

Better next time…

9. dmduncan - February 28, 2010

“They were going up against the sound misers from Avatar, District 9, The Hurt Locker, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”

Say what you will about the sound misers of Avatar, District 9, and The Hurt Locker, but they were certainly not miserly with sound on T:ROTF.

“I mean look at the awful Nemesis. We hired Oscar winning people to work behind the film and we all know how that turned out.”

Hilarious.

11. Captain Kathryn - February 28, 2010

Maybe they out to have an award for the most lens glares. Star Trek would have won hands down!

12. Captain Dunsel - February 28, 2010

Easy explanation-No tribbles , no awards.

13. Eli - February 28, 2010

At least Hurt Locker got it and not Avatar.

That means at least the sound experts have ears and could tell all of Avatar’s effects came off the shelf.

14. jonboc - February 28, 2010

Look at the sheer number of films released last year that were NOT even nominated for these various awards. Put in the proper perspective, JJ’s Trek did amazingly well.

15. S. John Ross - February 28, 2010

#14: “Put in the proper perspective, JJ’s Trek did amazingly well.”

No doubt. People sometimes say “it’s an honor just to be nominated” with a note of irony … but then pause to think of all the films (all the excellent films, and I daresay all the _better_ films) that don’t get nominated at all, and at the very least the irony changes direction. For ST09 to be as thoroughly and respectfully _acknowledged_ as it is is a genuine point of achievement for the film … winning would be nice icing, but the nominations are still the cake.

The movie done good. The parade of “Star Trek doesn’t quite win again” articles can get to be kind of a down note, but there’s a cup-half-full-cup-half-empty thing going on with it.

16. Kevin From Akron - February 28, 2010

@ #12 Correction there on the tribbles. When Scotty was found on Delta Vega, he had a pet tribble.

17. Red Skirt - February 28, 2010

#13, “That means at least the sound experts have ears and could tell all of Avatar’s effects came off the shelf.”

Yes, that’s exactly what that means. No question it could not have possibly been anything else. Never mind that it has nothing to do with the criteria the Cinema Audio Society award recognizes.

18. Sci-Fi Bri - February 28, 2010

maybe it would be more newsworthy, Anthony P, if star trek DID win an award… all i see are posts about how it lost… its a bummer

…in other news, star trek also didn’t win the phoenix open or the world series of poker…

19. Anthony Pascale - February 28, 2010

we reported the nomination so it only makes sense to follow up with reporting the result. this site isnt just here to report just the good news, what would that say about the integrity of the site?

20. Sci-Fi Bri - February 28, 2010

yea, you’re probably right. its just crazy that star trek is winless at this point… it was really good…

21. S. John Ross - February 28, 2010

#20: “its just crazy that star trek is winless at this point…”

It isn’t. It’s just win-lite.

22. Ran - February 28, 2010

Wow. Some people here expected the movie to cure cancer and bring peace to the middle east.

It is not that good!!!

23. Daniel S. Irwin - February 28, 2010

Um, I think you reported quite the typo:

“Star Trek’s Sound Production Mixer Tony Johnson, along with Re-recording Mixers Christopher Boyes, Gary Summers, and Andy Nelson were nominated for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Feature Film.”

Those are the mixers for “Avatar”. WHOOPS! Here are the actual credits:

Production Sound Mixer: Peter J. Devlin
Rerecording Mixers: Andy Nelson, Anna Belmer, and Paul Massey

thanks for reporting on the CAS Awards, either way. :-)

24. Hugh Hoyland - February 28, 2010

“CALL ME JOE, the expanded version” or AVATAR as its being presented now has won many awards. Oh well and Trek keeps getting snubbed. No problems though, lets hope Bob and co come up with a great sequel (and I think they will) that will win some respect in the official channels.

25. ryanhuyton - February 28, 2010

I’m not too disappointed that “Star Trek” hasn’t piled up the awards. The nominations prove to everyone (especially us fans) that Star Trek is getting back into the mainstream and is becoming cool again. Well, maybe I am a little disappointed, but that is more for the hardworking, talented people who made this wonderful movie. But at least their work is being recognized. There are a lot of other quality movies that also deserve recognition, including “Avatar” and “The Hurt Locker”, both great movies.

#5 “Dear friends(not to imply you are all Quakers (although some of you may be),…

Your statement is ironic on two levels:

a) You said you didn’t mean to imply everyone is a Quaker yet that is what just happened with your statement.

b) Quakers, or Amish, prefer a lifestyle without technology. I seriously doubt there are many Quakers on this site or any other site for that matter.
I don’t think the internet is their cup of tea. Although I could be wrong, since I’m no expert.

Also, you seem to “imply” there is something wrong with being a “Quaker”.
There is not. Its a perfectly fine lifestyle.

26. bill hiro - March 1, 2010

Quakers a/k/a The Religious Society of Friends, hence “Dear friends (not to imply you are all Quakers)” which was obviously an attempt at humor. And wow did you really overreact to that. Yikes.
