Rerecording mixer Andy Nelson extended his Oscar nominations tally to 24 with a pair of noms Tuesday for his work on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis and Matt Reeves’ The Batman. This extends his record for the most noms in the sound category. Until Tuesday, he also was tied with Randy Newman for the third-most noms among living persons, with 22 noms. He now holds that distinction with 24 .
Nelson won Oscars for Saving Private Ryan and Les Misérables.
In addition to Elvis, Nelson collaborated with Luhrmann, including the director’s Moulin Rouge! for which he was Oscar nominated, and Australia.
Nelson earned his first Oscar nomination in 1989 for Gorillas in the Mist, and his nominations include James Cameron’s 2009 Avatar. In addition to Saving Private Ryan, Nelson’s longtime relationship with Steven Spielberg has included nominations for movies including Schindler’s List, War of the Worlds, Lincoln, Bridge of Spies, and West Side Story.
