SKYWALKER RANCH, Calif. -- What does an Oscar nomination sound like? For Randy Thom, it sounds like chalk raking down a blackboard combined with a stallion's whinny and an elephant trumpeting. It can also sound like 200 gas ovens flaring to life in unison or the scratch and squeal of quarreling rats. Thom, the director of sound design at Skywalker Sound, this year has earned the 13th and 14th Academy Award nominations of his career, and he very much likes the sound of that.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a really great swooshing sound that makes the flight of a muscular man in tights seem possible. In animated features, the sounds are just as crucial as the visuals, and the desire to make them fresh keeps sound engineers and foley artists on constant alert for something new -- Monty Python pretty much outed the coconut-shell hoof beats years ago.
