Oscar 2007 : the Sounds

Then there's the sound in films. Music, narrative and sound effects create mood and help tell the story. For me, Sound Mixing goes to Dreamgirls for moving through all that music. Sound Editing I would give to Letters From Iwo Jima, the explosions and gunfire punctuated the film well. The Original Score in Pan's Labyrinth lingers in my mind. Dreamgirls generated three nominations for Original Song, the song Listen could give Randy Newman (Cars) a run for his money. I get chills every time I hear it.
