Game of Thrones wins two Golden Reel Awards for Sound Editing!


Last night, Game of Thrones won two Golden Reel Awards for Sound Editing. Unsurprisingly, both awards were for “The Spoils of War.”

The jaw-dropping episode won Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Episodic Short Form – Effect/Foley. The award was shared by Supervising Sound Editor, Tim Kimmel; Sound Designer, Paula Fairfield (who we at WOTW got to see at Con of Thrones); Sound Effects Editor, Bradley Katona; Foley Editors, Brett Voss and John Matter and Foley Artists, Jeff Wilhoit and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit

“The Spoils of War” also won Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Episodic Short Form – Dialogue/ADR, which was shared by Supervising Sound Editor, Tim Kimmel; Supervising Dialogue Editor, Paul Bercovitch and Supervising ADR Editor, Tim Hands.

Game of Thrones won all the awards for which it was nominated (2/2 woo-hoo!). But it’s worth noting that the majority of the winners in television categories are Netflix originals. Godless, Ozark, Black Mirror, The Get Down and Stranger Things all took home gold. Mayhaps this indicates something about the future of television?

You can find the entire list of winners in Variety’s coverage of the event.

    1. I wonder what the total number of every award of any kind is for the show so far… and how that compares to other shows. It doesn’t seem very common for a television drama to continually earn awards across the board for all the arts or categories….

    2. Clob,

      Yes, Big Little Lies could win for acting or writing or even music but it’s not gonna win for costume (too shop bought), art direction, VFX, sound effects, and probably not cinematography. Something like Game of Thrones encompasses so many different departments and so many different fields, working to a high standard. It’s why epics like Titanic or Return of the King can win 11 oscars, whereas something like Spotlight, brilliant though it is, was only nominated for six and won two. It’s only technical nom was editing.

      Sorry, everyone. Apologies for saying something positive about GOT. I know being a fan means hating something with a passion these days. What can I say, I was born in 80’s.
