Well, it's not what you probably thought as soon as you read the story title, but we cannot neglect an opportunity to pass along praise for Star Wars sound designer Ben Burtt. Mr. Burtt was recently honored with the CSS (Charles S. Swartz) Award at the Hollywood Post Alliance Awards for his work on JJ Abrams' Star Trek film.
"The HPA was bestowing Burtt with their Charles S. Swartz Award, which honors those who have made outstanding contributions to post production. In his introduction, JJ Abrams talks about being a fan of Burtt’s going back to the original Star Wars, and how Burtt came into the Star Trek post production late and put some "Star Trek" back into Star Trek"
