The Cinema Audio Society is set to announce Thursday that the nominees for outstanding achievement in sound mixing for motion pictures are "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Into the Wild," "No Country for Old Men, "300" and "Transformers."

Re-recording mixer Kevin O'Connell -- who has been nominated for an Oscar 19 times -- is in contention for the CAS award for his work on "Transformers," along with production mixer Peter Devlin and re-recording mixer Greg P. Russell.

Other nominated teams include production mixer Edward Tise and re-recording mixers Michael Minkler and Lora Hirschberg for "Into the Wild"; production mixer Kirk Francis and re-recording mixers Scott Millan and David Parker for "Bourne"; production mixer Peter Kurland and re-recording mixers Skip Lievsay, Craig Berkey and Gregg Orloff for "No Country"; and production mixer Doc Kane and re-recording mixers Chris Jenkins and Frank Montano for "300."

In the category of television movies and miniseries, the nominees are "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee," "The Company (Part 2)," "High School Musical 2," "The Kill Point (Part 5)" and "Tin Man."

Nominated in the competition for television nonfiction, variety or music -- series or specials are "A&E Rocks: Bon Jovi," "Deadliest Catch: The Unforgiving Sea," "Faces of Earth: The Human World," "Great Performances at the Met: The Magic Flute" and "The War (Episode 2: When Things Get Tough")."

The five nominees for DVD original programming are "Bring It On: In It to Win It," "Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme," "Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society," "The Invincible Iron Man" and "Species: The Awakening."

The awards will be presented Feb. 16 at the Millennium Biltmore.
