Surprise: Interstellar's sound nominations
Usually, technical categories do not award the film with the best costumes, sets or effects, but the most costumes, sets or effects. However, given the controversy surrounding Interstellar’s inconsistent poor sound mix, where the music and effects often overwhelmed the dialogue, Nolan’s sci-fi drama didn’t seem to have any chance.
However, much to our surprise, the Academy responded with berths for both sound mixing and editing.
We can hear their love for the film quite loudly.
