2015 Best Sound Design Winner

Love & Mercy


Just about every year I’ve ended up lazily giving this award to the loudest action movie in the nominees and called it a day, but this year I’ve been inspired in another direction.  Mostly it’s just that this musical biopic did one or two things with sound I hadn’t already seen (or rather heard) a million times before.  Even within the musical biopic genre most of the most of the audio fireworks we’re used to seeing are rooted in live performances, which this movie is mostly devoid of.
