The Cinema Audio Society have picked their top five candidates for the best Sound of the year. One musical, one science fiction, one western, and two action films made the cut, with “Dune” likely leading the pack as far as Oscar chances go. “No Time to Die” and “West Side Story” have to be favorites to be nominated for an Oscar as well. Not that I believe all five of these films will be the five that the Academy picks, but there’s simple cases to be made for both “The Power of the Dog” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home” to make the list as well. It should be noted that “Sing 2” continues to be the final animated film in multiple categories.
