Multiple Star Wars TV shows have received nominations for this year’s 70th Motion Picture Sound Editors’ Golden Reel Awards.
Awards season is currently in full swing, with numerous industry events and star-studded nights out scheduled for the next few months. The good news for Star Wars fans is that the Lucasfilm franchise is being recognised for its achievements with recent nominations for a number of its Disney+ TV shows.
Star Wars: Andor is currently up for ‘Best Drama Series’ at the Critics Choice Awards, with actor Diego Luna receiving a nod for his performance as Cassian Andor in the ‘Best Actor’ category. Luna is also nominated for ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama)’ at the upcoming Golden Globes event and Nicholas Britell is up for ‘Outstanding Score for a Television Production’ for his musical contribution to Star Wars: Andor.
Now added to the list of potential industry accolades for Star Wars TV shows are three nominations from the 70th Motion Picture Sound Editors’ (MPSE) Golden Reel Awards. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that ‘Reckoning,’ the third episode of Star Wars: Andor, has landed a nod for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Broadcast Long Form Effects/Foley’ and the animated Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi anthology for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Broadcast Animation.’ Rounding out the list of nominations is LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation, which will be competing in the ‘Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Non-Theatrical’ category.
The 70th Motion Picture Sound Editors’ (MPSE) Golden Reel Awards takes place on February 26, 2023, so we’ll know how successful Lucasfilm’s TV shows have been then.
