Held on Saturday, October 30, at the San Francisco Marriott, the Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards celebrated its 20 years in style. With surprise guest Janet Jackson introducing her “two dads,” Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (this year's Les Paul Award recipients), Walter Murch and George Lucas (one of two Hall of Fame inductees) reminiscing about their formative years at American Zoetrope and Elliot Scheiner (Hall of Fame) thanking the audio geniuses who helped him discover the richness in audio engineering, this year's TEC Awards was a hotbed for star sightings and recognizing excellence in audio.
