For the 18th time, sound mixer Kevin O'Connell was nominated for an academy award, this year for his work on Memoirs of a Geisha. But, for the 18th time, he went home with nothing.Awh come on, that just seems gratuitous. I mean, I know we have all the stories to hand about the greats who never won, or who were nominated multiple times and never won, and the ones who won seemingly becasue they had been overlooked in the past... but really, this is stupid.
Myself, I've always been more interested in the visuals of cinema: art direction, cinematography etc. But let's face it, without the sound guys we're back in the days of silent cinema. Kevin O'Connell shuld have his day. Any chance it could be asap?
