Joker and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood lead Motion Picture Sound Editors nominations

I make no apologies for the title of this post not matching the image, because I was delivered one of the biggest shocks of awards season so far when the Motion Picture Sound Editors declared their 2019 award nominations. One of the most peaceful, thoughtful movies of the year - Terrence Malick's A Hidden Life - claims a surprise nod for its sound effects and foley from the MPSE, joining some real big bangers like 1917 and Avengers: Endgame in doing so!

However, it's Joker and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood that will go into these awards as frontrunners, with a maximum three nominations apiece. With a shorter season than normal, this group - which usually holds its ceremony in late February (and has even done so on Oscar night or after the Oscars in the past) - will announce its winners on the 19th of January.
