After a tribute to horror films which are introduced by Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, "High School Musical" actor Zac Efron unveils the winner for Best Sound Editing. He announces it along with the "Twilight" star Anna Kendrick.
Among the nominees which include those working behind "Avatar", "Inglourious Basterds", "Star Trek" and "Up", Paul N.J. Ottosson who does the sound editing for "The Hurt Locker" comes out victorious. He also receives another kudo, sharing Best Sound Mixing prize with his partner Ray Beckett.
Coming onto the stage together, Paul is the first to open the acceptance speech. "You have to say something?" he asked Ray before then adding "Again, thank you so much. It's a little bit embarrassing. And to quote Kathryn [Bigelow], 'spores of riches'."
As for Ray, he gushed, "Thank you to the Academy. This is the crowning achievement of my career. Thank you to Kathryn, the whole production team. Thank you to my team in Jordan, Simon Bysshe and... thank you all."
