Czech sound technician nominated for Oscar

Czech sound technician Petr Forejt has been nominated for an Oscar for his work on the film Wanted, which was shot on location in Prague. He was nominated alongside colleagues Chris Jenkins and Frank Montano for his work on the film. Mr Forejt was the only Czech to feature in this year’s Oscars nominations, last year Valašské Meziříčí’s own Markéta Irglová won a best-song Oscar alongside Ireland’s Glen Hansard for Falling Slowly from the film Once.
