I was just curious to know .. Who has won the most number of oscars for sound? I know Gary Rydstrom has won 7 .. but is he the only one to have won these many? or are there few more?

  • Well I know Kevin O'Connell has 21 nominations and no wins. Mar 10, 2012 at 18:26

    a more difficult question (& in my humble opinion, a greater achievement) who has won an award for sound at Cannes?

  • Another good question would be "How many people who vote for the Academy Awards categories for sound are actually qualified to have a valid opinion on the matter?" Anyone know the inside scoop on who actually votes? Are they peers and active in the industry? Or is it anyone with membership to the academy?
