Brian Grazer was named 2011 MPSE Filmmaker Recipient

The Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) announces nominations for the organization's 58th annual Golden Reel Awards. The ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 20, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. The 2011 MPSE Filmmaker Recipient will be Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer, while the 2011 MPSE Career Achievement Recipient will be renowned sound designer and editor Walter Murch.

“Our members are editing professionals who want to raise awareness of what a motion-picture soundtrack is capable of doing to support the art of motion pictures,” says MPSE president Bobbi Banks. "Each year the MPSE presents the Golden Reel Awards as acknowledgements of the year's best work in the various areas of sound editing for dialog and ADR, effects and Foley, and music. We are also extremely proud to present Brian Grazer with our Filmmaker Recipient, and to honor Walter Murch as our Career Achievement Recipient.”

Active MPSE members vote in the general nomination ballot and may serve on the blue ribbon panels that vote for the final awards.
