Home studios today are somewhat limited in gear, especially when it comes to microphone selection. That means that many of the tracks end up getting recorded by the same mic sometimes, which isn’t ideal when it comes to fitting mix elements into the mix. Choosing the right microphone for the job can be a crucial decision when it comes to not only a good recording, but having the element fit into the mix later.

This category typically correlates to best picture but as we’ve seen with past winners like “Birdman,” that’s not always the case. Plenty of usual suspects in the mix like Kirk Baxter and the still unrewarded Tariq Anwar. There have been only four women who have won this category in the last 20 years and (for the moment) Chloe Zhao looks to be the best shot but there are six more months to go.

You don't even need to open your eyes to know when you're watching an Edgar Wright film. The auteur uses sound in such an advantageous way that it propels the story without the audience even recognizing it's there. His movies are layered in rich sound design that is not cacophonous, but instead, moves to the rhythm of the visuals. As much as we pay attention to David Fincher's decisions behind every camera movement, Wright is an aficionado when it comes to understanding how sound can influence story.
