The Cinema Audio Society in Los Angeles announces that comedian/writer/animal activist Elayne Boosler (pictured) has been tapped to serve as host of the upcoming 52nd CAS Awards.
“I am a huge a fan of Elayne Boosler and enjoy her sense of humor and perspective,” says CAS President Mark Ulano. “I know she will keep our show moving with grace and humor.”
The 52nd CAS Awards will be held on February 20, 2016, in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
This year in conjunction with the awards, guests have been invited to celebrate the earliest beginnings of sound and film at a Salon that will feature the only surviving Edison Kinetophone and an original Bergmann edition of an Edison tinfoil phonograph.
Besides Technical Achievement Awards for Production and Post-production, the CAS Student Recognition Award and awards for Outstanding Achievements in Sound Mixing in six categories will be presented.
Special honors will go to Doc Kane as the CAS Career Achievement Honoree and Bryan Cranston will present the CAS Filmmaker Award to director Jay Roach.
On the evening of the Awards the Cinema Audio Society will update its Website in real time as the winners are announced.
