AD ASTRA

Gary Rydstrom | Tom Johnson | Mark Ulano

Astronaut Roy McBride embarks on a mission across the solar system to uncover the truth about his missing father and his doomed space expedition that now, 30 years later, threatens the universe.

UNLIKELY

“Ad Astra” was one of this year’s outliers, a film that was nominated nothing but one random award. In this case, it was nominated for Best Sound Mixing and kudos to the team for getting that recognition despite the film not landing anywhere in the Oscars. Will it win? Probably not. But it definitely has merits to be here. The entire category is filmed with Best Picture nominated film and right now it comes down to “1917” and “Ford v Ferrari” for the win.
