2016 Academy Awards Predictions – Best Sound Mixing

Best Sound Mixing will fall the same way of Best Sound Editing in 2016. This knocks Bridge of Spies out of the running, I’m afraid. The remaining four are a mixed bag, and each one has its shot.


There is a stereotype that the biggest, loudest movie of the year is the shoe-in for the two sound categories. This isn’t always the case. But this year it might be.

The competition, I feel, is between Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Both films blend sounds deftly in a way that enhances the overall experience of the film. I don’t think the same could be said for the other films in the category.




Will Win: Mad Max: Fury Road

Could Win: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Dark Horse: The Revenant

As always, thanks for reading!
