INTERVIEW WITH: Paul N.J. Ottosson

INTERVIEW WITH: Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers


Per Hallberg: Well, thank you to the Academy. This is so cool. We always wished we could work on a Bond movie and we never quite thought that was going to happen. But it did,
and we just want to thank Michael and Barbara for inviting us to the family. Then we got Sam Mendes as the director and that just made it even sweeter. We got to mix for our friends Scott and Greg, and now this.

Karen Baker Landers: And I just want to say that all the other nominees in this category, we’re all storytellers. We just tell our story through sound and this is a huge honor. It’s telling me to wrap it up now. I want to thank Peter Staubli, Dino DiMuro,
Chris Assells, Dan Hegeman.

Per: Chris Hogan, Stuver, and our guys Tony, Phil.

Karen: Chris Jargo

Per: Chris Jargo, Craig Jaeger. Thank you so much.

Karen: Thank you.

Paul N.J. Ottosson: To the Academy, thank you, this is such an honor. Kathryn, what a fantastic
movie. And my crew. I was fortunate to be here a few years with The Hurt Locker. I was awarded two of these. I woke up in the morning, 7:00 and our son said, “One for mommy, one for daddy.” And he looked at me and said, “Where’s mine?” And Theo, I love you. Karen, I love you. Mom watching at home, I love you. My dad, with God now, I love you, I miss you. Good night. Thank you.
