“Dark of the Moon” Nominated for 3 Oscars

{mosimage}And like its preceding two films, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is once again nominated in the Academy Awards! Visual Effects is one familiar category with Scott Farrar, Scott Benza, Matthew Butler, and John Frazier on hand. The next two involve sound: Sound Mixing with Greg P. Russell, Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush, and Peter J. Devlin (to which both Transformers and Revenge of the Fallen were also nominated for previously in 2008 and 2010, respectively); and Sound Editing with Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl, because you can't have Transformers without hearing all those wonderful cues.

The 84th Academy Awards will air on February 26, 2012. Sound off at our discussion thread.
