Perhaps unsurprisingly for the Dolby Institute Podcast, we begin our 2021 Oscars coverage with the nominees for Best Sound! This is a very special episode for us because it is the first time we've interviewed all the nominees for a category and edited them together into a single podcast. Our hope is that if you are an Oscar voter — either as an Academy member or as a fan participating in your annual office pool — you'll have a much better idea of what to watch for and (more importantly) what to listen for as you get to the Best Sound category on your ballot.
We had some amazing conversations with each of the teams and we hope you find them as entertaining and as enlightening as we did. Here's a table of contents, in case you'd like to jump around:
00:00:48 - GREYHOUND
00:14:53 - MANK
00:27:01 - NEWS OF THE WORLD
00:43:13 - SOUL
00:58:00 - SOUND OF METAL
Congratulations and many, many thanks to all of the nominees! Here they are, once again in alphabetical order:
GREYHOUND - Warren Shaw, Michael Minkler, Beau Borders and David Wyman
MANK - Ren Klyce, Jeremy Molod, David Parker, Nathan Nance and Drew Kunin
NEWS OF THE WORLD - Oliver Tarney, Mike Prestwood Smith, William Miller and John Pritchett
SOUL - Ren Klyce, Coya Elliott and David Parker
SOUND OF METAL - Nicolas Becker, Jaime Baksht, Michellee Couttolenc, Carlos Cortés and Phillip Bladh
We would also like to thank the folks at Apple, Netflix, Universal Pictures, Disney, Pixar, Amazon, and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for helping us pull these interviews together (in record time!) and for all the wonderful film clips.
Don't miss these incredible films:
For a deeper dive into "Mank" and "Soul," be sure to check out our recent episodes with the directors of those films. And because we got so much good stuff from each of these interviews, we hope to release some of those in their entirety as bonus episodes in the coming weeks.
We have two more episodes just like this one — for the Best Cinematography and Best Animated Feature categories — coming up. So if you haven't already, please subscribe to Sound + Image Lab: The Dolby Institute Podcast wherever you get your podcasts.
