News   Rob Marshall Will Receive Cinema Audio Society's Filmmaker Award
Academy Award-nominated "Chicago" and "Nine" director Rob Marshall will be presented with the Cinema Audio Society's Filmmaker Award Feb. 18, 2012, in Los Angeles.

The non-profit philanthropic organization will honor Marshall during the 48th CAS Awards ceremony in the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium-Biltmore Hotel. Marshall has previously been nominated by CAS for "Memoirs of a Geisha," “Chicago" and "Annie."

Marshall is being honored along side re-recording sound mixer Scott Milan, who was previously announced to receive the CAS Career Achievement Award. Milan worked on Marshall's screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical Nine.

“We are delighted to be honoring Rob Marshall," CAS president David E. Fluhr said in a statement. "Rob's career spans Broadway, television, live performance and multiple feature film genres: musical, drama, fantasy adventure and tentpole blockbusters. Following in a tradition of synergy between our two honorees, Marshall as the Filmmaker Honoree and Scott Millan, CAS as the Career Achievement Honoree worked together on Marshall’s film 'Nine.' The CAS has recognized Marshall’s work three times by nominating his 'Memoirs of a Geisha,' 'Chicago' and 'Annie.' He is indeed a perfect choice for the CAS Filmmaker Honoree."

CAS annually presents awards for outstanding achievement in sound mixing, which are presented to re-recording and production mixers in each of four categories: Television Non-Fiction, Variety or Music Series or Special; Television Series; Television Movies or Mini-Series; and Motion Pictures.

Marshall most recently directed "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." He also executive produced, directed and choreographed "Tony Bennett: An American Classic." He is a six-time Tony Award nominee for Little Me (Best Choreography), Cabaret (Best Direction, Best Choreography), She Loves Me (Best Choreography), Damn Yankees (Best Choreography) and Kiss of the Spider Woman (Best Choreography).
