2009 Best Sound Winner

Avatar

This almost isn’t even fair.  While I saw the other nominees in conventional movie screens, I saw Avatar in an IMAX theater with full IMAX sound.  The scene that really stood out was the Tree explosion, an important scene which really shook the theater with its immense sound.  It was one of the loudest moments I can think of and it wasn’t just volume power that made it work, it was a conscious decision to make the sound in that scene stand out like it did and it added a lot of impact.

Next Award: Best Art Direction
