The guilds are getting going as the second phase of awards season, dominated by guild award nominations and the early televized ceremonies, develops in earnest. The sound categories at the Oscars are often among the hardest to predict, so the Cinema Audio Society ought to provide some solid guidance on at least a few of the titles in contention for nominations in a fortnight.
