CAS 2019 Awards – ‘A Star Is Born’ & ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Lead the Way, ‘Roma’ Misses

A Star Is Born

With a plethora of guilds announcing their nominees for the best in their respective fields, momentum continues to build for several films. Yesterday, “A Star Is Born” grabbed nominations at every Guild, and it continues that trend with the Cinema Audio Society Awards, or CAS Awards. Also earning nods were “First Man,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Black Panther,” and “A Quiet Place.” The question many will ask is what happened to “Roma,” one of the sound achievements of the year. Skip Lievsay not only has an Oscar, but three CAS wins as well. Craig Henighan also has a CAS nomination to his name. It’s unclear why the mixing of “Roma,” perhaps the best element of the film, was ignored here.
