He earned critical acclaim for his sound mixing on Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Babel, including BAFTA and Satellite Award nods. The Mexican sound mixer, however, didn’t make the shortlist for an Academy Award nomination that year. But that’s all changed this year. García has just set a date with Oscar, with his nomination in the Best Sound Mixing category for his impressive work on Ben Affleck’s Argo, which is based on the Canadian Caper that took place during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979 and 1980.
