Dolby Atmos  Dolby Vision  Awards  Dolby Cinema 


Dolby Cinema is celebrating after scoring some significant wins at the 2019 Academy Awards. Bohemian Rhapsody beat off stiff competition, most notably from Roma, to secure best Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. The Netflix-funded Roma took Best Cinematography.

Held at the prestigious Dolby Theatre, the Oscars also saw Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos nominations Bao and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse win their categories.

All of the above are certain to prove their worth in home cinema showrooms over the next 12 months.

Dolby technologies featured in eight Oscar winning films this year. Since the release of Star Wars in 1978, movies with Dolby sound technology have taken 66 Oscars in the categories of Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, and Sound Effects Editing.

The event, which went host-free this year, wasn’t without controversy, with Green Book the unfavoured winner of the Best Picture gong. "Every time somebody's driving somebody, I lose," quipped director Spike Lee, whose BlackkKlansman was tipped as a potential surprise winner.
