Spielberg honoured with soundtrack award


Steven Spielberg has won the Motion Picture Sound Editors' (MPSE) 2010 'Filmmaker Award'.

The veteran Hollywood director will be honoured at MPSE's Golden Reel Awards ceremony on February 20 in Los Angeles for the groundbreaking and innovative soundtracks that have accompanied his movies over his 40-year career, Contactmusic reports.

MPSE president Bobbi Banks said: "Steven Spielberg's evolution of the sound experience and collaboration with the sound and music editors has helped to shape new dimensions in sound."

Spielberg was reported last week to have abandoned a remake of Harvey with Dreamworks.
