The career winners of the evening are certainly no strangers to each other. Two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Ron Howard received the MPSE’s highest honour, the Filmmaker Award, and the Career Achievement Award went to Anthony “Chic” Ciccolini III. Among his many credits, Ciccolini served as supervising sound editor on more than a dozen Howard films, ranging from Willow, Kinship and Far for Frost/Nixon, The paper, The “Da Vinci Code, Angels and nominated for the Best Picture Oscar Apollo 13 and winner a beautiful spirit.

Ciccolini, whose TV credits include Sex and the city, the corner and delaventura, received his Emmy-winning award barry supervisor of sound editor Rickley W. Dumm.

Presenters also included squid game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, Ciccolini and former MPSE Career Achievement Award winners Harry Cohen, John Roesch, Cece Hall and Richard L. Anderson.

This will mark the second Oscars without a separate Oscar category for sound editing, after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences combined sound editing and sound mixing into a single Best Sound category in April 2020. The Trial of the Chicago 7, Soul, The Queen’s Gambit and The Mandalorian were among the big winners of last year’s Golden Reels, but The sound of metal won Best Sound at the Oscars.
