Congratulations to Nashville sound mixer and recordist Peter Kurland, who picked up the British equivalent of an Oscar Sunday night from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts
(BAFTA). He won for his work on Walk the Line
, as did hometown sweetheart Reese Witherspoon, who collected Best Actress honors for her role as June Carter. Here's hoping their luck holds out on March 5, as both Kurland and Witherspoon are nominated for Academy Awards.
Cool trivia: Kurland remains the only technician to work on every Joel and Ethan Coen film, from 1984's Blood Simple
