2021 Oscar Predictions: SOUND (October)

With Dune gone, Sound of Metal moves up (a Hamptons Film Q&A revealed the sound designers worked for two years with 23 weeks of sound recordings for the film) and News of the World enters the top 5.

Still, multiple musicals and musical biopics are on the awards landscape: any one or more of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, The Prom, Respect and The United States vs Billie Holiday could factor into the sound race.

Here are my 2021 Oscar predictions in Sound for October.
