Dolby Laboratories announced that all of the films nominated for Oscars® this year in the Sound Editing and Sound Mixing categories use Dolby® Digital or Dolby Digital Surround EX™ technology. The winners will be announced on February 27, 2005 during the 77th Annual Academy Awards®, which will be broadcast by ABC. The presentation will be televised live from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Calif.
Dolby technologies have helped to create some of the most innovative audio experiences in theatres.

Films using Dolby audio technologies have been nominated for an Oscar Award 27 consecutive years.
