    Quantum of Solace has scored a nomination from the Cinema Audio Society for sound mixing.

    The 22nd James Bond film will compete against four others for the top prize in the feature film category. The Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Awards will be presented on Sunday, 14 February at the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium-Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

    The films competing in the feature film category for sound mixing are:

    The Dark Knight – Ed Novick, Lora Hirschberg, Gary A. Rizzo

    Iron Man – Mark Ulano, CAS, Christopher Boyes, Lora Hirschberg

    Quantum of Solace – Chris Munro, CAS, Mike Prestwood Smith, Mark Taylor

    Slumdog Millionaire – Resul Pookutty, Ian Tapp, Richard Pryke

    Wall-E – Tom Myers, Michael Semanick, CAS

    In early 2007, Munro, Prestwood Smith and Taylor (along with Eddy Joseph and Martin Cantwell) won a British Academy Film (BAFTA) award for their work on the sound mixing in Daniel Craig’s first James Bond film, Casino Royale.

    Last year, Munro stated that Quantum of Solace would feature state-of-the-art sound equipment.
