Os­car nom­i­nees in the Sound Edit­ing cat­e­gory are Grav­ity, Cap­tain Phillips, All Is Lost, The Hob­bit: The Des­o­la­tion Of Smaug and Lone Sur­vivor.

In the tele­vi­sion cat­e­gories, Game Of Thrones won two awards, mak­ing it the only show to win more than one. Break­ing Bad, Sons Of An­ar­chy, The Bridge and the doc­u­men­tary The His­tory Of The Ea­gles also won TV prizes.

The cer­e­mony took place at the Westin Bon­aven­ture in down­town Los Angeles. Sound de­signer and rere­cord­ing mixer Randy Thom was given the MPSE’s Ca­reer Achieve­ment Award, while the show also in­cluded a spe­cial trib­ute to in­ven­tor Ray Dolby, who died last Septem­ber. – Reuters
