The Cinema Audio Society was delighted to honor James Mangold at the 56th CAS awards on Saturday, January 25th, 2020. His ability to create various quintessentially stylized worlds that appeal to a large mélange of audiences makes him an expert storyteller,” said CAS President Karol Urban. “He is a unique talent who has written, produced, and directed a large variety of genres and formats that have garnered him many awards including our own CAS Award for Outstanding Sound Mixing for his film ‘Walk the Line’.”

Award-winning films Mangold has written and directed include “Heavy,” “Cop Land,” “Girl Interrupted,” Walk the Line,” “3:10 to Yuma,” and “Logan”.
