Riz Ahmed learned to play the drums for music scenes, recorded live in Sound of Metal.
Cinema Audio Society honorees also include 'Soul' and 'The Mandalorian.'

The sound mixing team behind Amazon's Sound of Metal won the Cinema Audio Society Award for outstanding sound mixing in a live action feature Saturday during a virtual presentation of the 57th annual CAS Awards.

It topped a field that also included Apple's Greyhound, Netflix's Mank, Universal's News of the World, Amazon's Sound of Metal and Netflix's The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Also on Saturday, Pixar's jazz-inspired Soul won the feature animation category, leading a field of nominees that also included Aardman/Netflix's Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, Pixar's Onward,and Dreamworks Animation's The Croods: A New Age and Trolls World Tour.

This year, the Oscars in sound mixing and sound editing have been combined into a single category for best sound. The Academy nominated Greyhound, Mank, News of the World, Soul and Sound of Metal.

During the CAS Awards, Oscar-winning sound designer Randy Thom presented the CAS Filmmaker Award to George Clooney. Calling sound an "important part of storytelling and filmmaking," Clooney said, "until you get onto a mixing stage, you don't really understand how different a film is once you've mixed it."

Seven-time Oscar-nominated sound mixer William B. Kaplan (Top Gun, Forrest Gump) was presented the Career Achievement Award by sound mixer Amanda Beggs, and also received tributes from colleagues including Bob Zemeckis and John Landis. Kaplan remembered growing up on film sets (his father worked at MGM) and said "after 155 features and more than 51 years, a set is my home and the crew is my family."

Brandyn Johnson of USC was honored with the CAS Student Recognition Award.
