Los Angeles – The Cinema Audio Society (CAS) has announced the addition of a new category for Outstanding Sound Mixing for an Animated Motion Picture, as well as changes to eligibility rules for sound mixers.
“We are thrilled to announce that we are adding a new category for Outstanding Sound Mixing for an Animated Motion Picture. Animation is a vibrant and vital genre that spans stories for all ages and lives on for generations. The sound mixing being done in animation deserves to be recognized and honored,” said CAS President David E. Fluhr in making the announcement.
The CAS will also separate the Television Series category into two categories: Outstanding Sound Mixing for Television Series – Half Hour and Outstanding Sound Mixing for Television Series – One Hour. There will no longer be a DVD Original Programming category.
