Avid Congratulates Oscar®-Winning Users For Their Creative Achievements

News Image
Avid® has congratulated its Oscar®-winning users for their creative achievements at the Academy Awards®, following the success of Oppenheimer, which collected seven awards, including Best Picture, and Best Film Editing for editor Jennifer Lame, ACE.

Lame edited Oppenheimer with Avid Media Composer®, the industry’s gold-standard editing tool for creative professionals.

Oppenheimer was one of ten nominees for the Best Picture Oscar®, nine of which were edited on Avid Media Composer – including American Fiction, Anatomy of a Fall, Barbie, The Holdovers, Maestro, Past Lives, Poor Things and The Zone of Interest.

In addition to Lame, three other nominees for Best Film Editing used Media Composer – including Laurent Sénéchal (Anatomy of a Fall), Kevin Tent, ACE (The Holdovers), and Yorgos Mavropsaridis, ACE (Poor Things).

Oppenheimer also won the Oscar® for Best Original Score, with composer Ludwig Göransson's score produced on Avid’s music notation software Sibelius®, and with live recording captured in Avid’s audio production software Pro Tools®.

"Hollywood's most imaginative creatives choose Avid tools to produce the world’s most recognised and admired stories," said Tim Claman, Avid's Chief Product Officer. "We're extremely proud of all our amazing community and we delight in every opportunity to celebrate them. Their accolades inspire us to keep innovating to continuously elevate the craft of storytelling."

Film and television editors have trusted Avid for more than 30 years to achieve excellence in their craft. Ever since its trailblazing launch, Avid Media Composer has been consistently recognized as the industry’s top video editing system. The Academy first awarded an Oscar® for Best Editing to an Avid user in 1996. Then in 1999, Avid itself received an Oscar® for the concept, system design and engineering of Media Composer (then known as the Avid Film Composer) for motion picture editing. Further recognition from the Academy for Avid’s creative tools came in 2004 when the business received an Oscar® for pioneering creative tools for audio postproduction with Avid Pro Tools®.

The Oscar® recognition for Oppenheimer, Lame and Göransson follows their success at last month's BAFTA Film Awards in London – where Oppenheimer won Best Film, Lame picked up the Best Editing award and Göransson won for Best Original Score, eliciting further congratulations from the Avid team.
