Euphonix congratulates the sound mixing team of Michael Minkler and Tony Lambert, as well as veteran composer Hans Zimmer on their Academy Award nominations announced this week.
Minkler and Lambert were nominated for Best Achievement in Sound Mixing for Inglourious Basterds that was dubbed on a dual-operator Euphonix System 5 digital audio mixing system at Todd-AO Hollywood’s newly refurbished Stage 1. The pair shares the nomination with Production Mixer Mark Ulano.
Zimmer was nominated for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, for his original score of the film Sherlock Holmes.
A long-time Euphonix client, Zimmer creates his world-class music using his two Euphonix System 5 digital mixing systems installed at his Santa Monica-based studio, Remote Control Productions.
Inglourious Basterds marks the eleventh Oscar nomination for Minkler, who has previously won three times for Black Hawk Down and Dreamgirls, which were also mixed on the Euphonix mixing systems, and Chicago.
It’s Zimmer’s eighth nomination, who is looking for another win since his first Oscar for the score of The Lion King. This is Lamberti’s first nomination.
Mixing teams on movies dubbed with Euphonix consoles have been nominated for Sound Mixing Oscars every year since 2001 and have won the award six times, including last year’s breakout hit Slumdog Millionaire mixed at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom.
The 82nd Academy Awards will be presented live on Sunday, March 7 at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.
