b y K a r o l U r b a n C A S M P S E CINEMA AUDIO SOCIETY 55 th Awards O n February 16, 2019, more than 650 members of the Cinema Audio Society and the sound community met at the Wilshire Grand Ballroom of the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown for the 55th Cinema Audio Society Awards. The elegant evening brought together the top sound mixers from production and post for what CAS President Mark Ulano described as "our annual family reunion" where we "celebrate getting together and each other's work." The festivities launched with a cocktail reception sponsored by Avid. Title sponsor Dolby welcomed everyone to the awards dinner, hosted again this year by Michael Kosta. With his polished wit and seamless flow, the Daily Show comedian entertained all in attendance while making the evening fly by. Throughout the night, celebrity presenters graced the stage, including Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born), Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), Alex Honnold (Free Solo), Megan Fox (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds), Tom Payne (The Walking Dead), Lauralee Bell (The Young & the Restless), Julia Butters (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Zoe Bell (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), and Beverly Todd (The Bucket List). Once the last award had been received, after-party sponsor Smart Post Sound invited all in attendance to wind the night out in true fashion in the Wilshire Grand Ballroom's foyer. by Steve Urban MPSE
