Oscar-nominated production sound mixer Jose Antonio Garcia never actually saw a script for “Roma” during shooting. “I think the production designer was the only one who got a script,” he recalls. Everyone else got “a piece of paper with broad strokes of the dialogue, whatever might be said or not.” Therefore, every actor “would be wired” with microphones, and Garcia would “brace for impact.” Suffice it to say that this complicated Garcia’s job, but instead of creating chaos, it led to “a beautiful experience.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Garcia and re-recording mixer Craig Henighan above. SEE Eugenio Caballero Interview: ‘Roma’ Writer-director Alfonso Cuaron based this film about a maid (Yalitza Aparicio) working for a middle-class family largely on his own childhood, down to the specific sounds of the city. Henighan, therefore, wanted “to make the film feel as immersive” as possible, to “make you really feel like you were in Mexico City in 1970.” To do this, he and fellow re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay (who shares their Oscar nomination for Best Sound Mixing) used Dolby Atmos in order to “pan dialogue” and the multi-layered soundtrack “around the theater.” SEE Skip Lievsay Interview: ‘Roma’ Garcia previously competed at the Oscars for “Argo” (2012). Henighan is a first-time Oscar nominee, but he won two Emmys in a row for “Stranger Things” in (Best Sound Editing for a Series, 2017-2018). Their bid is one of 10 “Roma” received overall from the motion picture academy, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Aparicio), Best Supporting Actress (Marina de Tavira), and Best Original Screenplay. And it has already won Critics’ Choice and BAFTA Awards for Best Picture.

Up until this week, I was predicting that “RBG,” the Oscar-nominated documentary tribute to the wonder woman who is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg would win, mostly because of its medicinal effect on our uncertain times. It gets many things right, like highlighting her nearly half-century love story with her devoted husband, Martin, her odd couple friendship with fellow Justice Antonin Scalia and her career-long dedication to fighting on behalf of women to be treated as equals in the eyes of the law. But “RBG’ has one major flaw that is simply the fault of Ginsberg’s profession. We can’t eavesdrop on her arguments in the Supreme Court or witness her as she delivers those scathingly brilliant dissents in real time. Basically, we rummage through her closet and see her jazzy array of jabots that she wears with her robes. And we can hear her arguments for her landmark cases over the years. But we can’t really watch her on the job. [pmc-related-link href=”https://www.goldderby.com/article/2018/betsy-west-julie-cohen-rbg-documentary-ruth-bader-ginsberg-supreme-court-video-interview-news/” type=”SEE” target=”_self”]How ‘RBG’ directors humanized Ruth Bader Ginsberg [VIDEO][/pmc-related-link] That, however, hasn’t stopped nine Experts from backing the title, including Claudia Puig (KPCC), Dave Karger (IMDB), Jack Mathews (Gold Derby), Keith Simanton (IMDB), Scott Mantz (Collider), Bonnie Fuller (Hollywood Life), Eric Deggans (NPR), Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo) and, our fearless leader, Tom O’Neil. Look, I fell hard for Agnes Varda in “Faces Places” last year and it got me nowhere. Cute little old ladies who are forces of nature are great, but sentiment doesn’t go as far these days when it comes to docs. You know what does? Sports, especially when the doc in question centers on controversy or troubled men. This decade, “Undefeated,” about a struggling Memphis high-school football team, won the 2011 Oscar. “O.J.: Made in America” won the 2016 trophy. And, last year, “Icarus” — about the doping scandal in sports — crossed the finish line and grabbed the statuette. “Free Solo,” however, is a step beyond most sport docs. This is one that offers a grand cinematic experience as we watch our obsessed thrill junkie subject, Alex Honnold, attempt to do a feat at high altitude that no one has ever done: Free climb the forbidding expanse 3,000-foot expanse of El Capitan, Yosemite’s nearly 3,ooo-foot granite wall without any equipment. Unlike “RBG,” this viewing experience gives us that “you are there” feeling. On the human side,we also see Honnold attempt his first real relationship with a woman, a struggle that is sometime the equal of his sky-high challenges.  It also just won Best Documentary at BAFTA, which counts for something. SEE ‘Free Solo’ co-director Jimmy Chin on his ‘life and death’ documentary [VIDEO] That is why I am joining 14 other Experts who are climbing aboard the “Free Solo” train.  Those joining me are Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Andrea Mandell (USA Today), Perri Nemiroff (Collider), Wilson Morales (BlackFilm), Tariq Khan (Fox TV), Erik Davis (Fandango), Michael Musto (NewNowNext), Brian Truitt (USA Today), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Christopher Rosen (TVGuide.com), Anne Thompson (Indiewire) and Kevin Polowy (Yahoo). Then there are three brave souls predicting “Minding the Gap,” about three young men growing up in Rockford, Illinois, who are united by their love of skateboarding and how they define what it means to be a man these days and part of a community. Susan King (Gold Derby ), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), Tim Gray (Variety) are backing this topical contender. Considering that “Gap” earned a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, I wouldn’t be too shocked if they all were right.

“BlacKkKlansman” is the Oscar front-runner for Best Adapted Screenplay, with “If Beale Street Could Talk” poised to upset, but in our Writers Guild Awards predictions, the Expert journalists we’ve polled point to another possible surprise: “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” As of this writing “Klansman” is the overwhelming favorite at the WGA Awards with 31/10 odds, and it’s backed by six of our seven Experts: Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Susan King (Gold Derby), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Adnan Virk and Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby). And “Beale Street” ranks second with 39/10 odds with support from some of our Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s WGA Awards, but not from our Experts. [pmc-related-link href=”https://pages.email.goldderby.com/signup/&#8221; type=”SIGN UP” target=”_self”]for Gold Derby’s free newsletter with latest predictions[/pmc-related-link] However, one of our Experts, Tariq Khan (Fox TV), is going out on a limb for “Forgive Me.” Is he onto something? The film has the benefit of being about a writer, biographer Lee Israel (played by Melissa McCarthy), who became infamous for selling forged letters to literary collectors. Industry writers may be especially able to relate to the film’s subject matter and references. The guild may also want to reward writer Nicole Holofcener, who is a veteran of film and TV with a past WGA nomination for her original screenplay for “Please Give” (2011). Holofcener also has numerous directing credits on the small screen ranging from “Six Feet Under,” to “Enlightened,” to “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” so she has professional relationships that span the industry. And while her co-writer Jeff Whitty is a first-time screenwriter, he’s a past Tony winner for penning the book for “Avenue Q” (2004), so there may be continued good will for him as well.
