As expected, James Mangold’s ’60s racing epic “Ford v Ferrari,” animated feature “Toy Story 4,” and documentary “Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound” took top honors at the 56th Cinema Audio Society Awards recognizing outstanding sound mixing.

As an Oscar bellwether, though, six of the past 10 CAS winners have gone on to win the sound mixing Oscar, which bodes well for “Ford v Ferrari.” However, Oscar-nominated “1917,” Sam Mendes’ continuous-shot, World War I extravaganza, was not in contention at the CAS Awards, which makes the race very competitive.

“We threw out the production sound,” said Dave Giammarco, the “Ford v Ferrari” re-recording mixer. “But when we got the real GT40, it helped inform the cut because it has its own signature [sound], and you want to wind it out and feel the whole length of it. Sometimes they would cut the shot to match the engine whine. And sometimes you hear the engine and score [from Marco Beltrami and Buck Sanders] playing together almost at the same chord.”

Mangold took home the CAS filmmaker award, presented by re-recording mixer Paul Massey, CAS, and Harrison Ford. Re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman was honored with the CAS career achievement award, hailed with congratulation messages from production sound mixer Chris Newman, CAS, and director Martin Scorsese.

On the television side, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” for the episode The Bells,” “Barry” with “ronny/lily,” and “Chernobyl with “1:23:45,” as well as Showtime’s “David Bowie: Finding Fame,” and Amazon’s “Fleabag” took television honors.

Awards were presented in seven categories for Outstanding Sound Mixing, Motion Picture and Television, and two Outstanding Product Awards at the Wilshire Grand Ballroom of the InterContinental Los Angeles in downtown.
