Best Sound Editing

Oscars make up the most-awaited award ceremony for all the artists associated with Hollywood. It is the apt platform, where the efforts of such people are rewarded in the most splendid way. 'Oscar for Best Sound Editing' is granted to a film that has the best or most artistic sound editing or sound design. 'Supervising Sound Editors' of a film are generally presented with this award, at times accompanied by the Sound Designers.
 
The Sound Department of the Academy, until 2006, uses a "bake-off" of the best films from the preceding year to choose the films to be referred to the full academy, for nomination to this award. This rule was altered on June 30, 2006, the bake-off for the sound branch was abolished and the customary method of a "preferential ballot" submission was started. In the lines below, we have provided a list of the winners in the category of 'Academy Award for Best Sound Editing'.
