The Oscar nominations weren't the only awards announced this week, and while I'm so very happy with the Best Picture nominations (and also Amy Adams!!), it wasn't the most exciting news at the Redpath household. Other entertainment industry award nominations were announced this week as well - and Bob has been nominated for three Golden Reel Awards, which are presented by the Motion Picture Sound Editors,
"... acknowledging the year's best work in the various areas of sound editing: Dialogue & ADR, Effects & Foley, and Music."
Bob was nominated in two categories for the TV show Fringe, and once for My Own Worst Enemy.
The awards show is the end of February. Bob's pretty excited that he's going to get to hear Ben Burtt speak, who is receiving the MPSE Career Achievement Award that night.
These nominations feel somehow more poignant to me because they they might be the last fancy black-tie award shows we'll go too. The Emmy's felt the same way. It's fun, and a bit sad too.
