Bohemian Rhapsody’s technical teams become Oscar champions

Plus First Man wins Academy Award for Visual Effects

Bohemian Rhapsody took home the most trophies at the 91st Academy Awards, including Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Editing.

John Warhurst and Nina Hartstone picked up the Sound Editing award for the Freddie Mercury biopic, while Paul Massey, Tim Cavagin and John Casali won the Sound Mixing category. The Oscar for Editing went to John Ottman.

The Bohemian Rhapsody sound teams used Dolby Atmos in their sound design. Dolby Vision was utilised by Best Cinematography winner Alfonso Cuarón for Roma, which also won Best Foreign Language Film. Best Animated Feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Best Animated Short Film Bao also employed Dolby’s audio-visual technologies.

Meanwhile First Man was the Visual Effects winner, with Paul Lambert, Ian Hunter, Tristan Myles and J.D. Schwalm taking the prize. It was the second consecutive Oscar for Lambert of British VFX house DNEG, having won last year for Blade Runner 2049.
