How the sound in 'A Star is Born' was layered and designed

"A Star Is Born," starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, scored eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. It has also been praised for its use of both music and sound, which might explain why it was also nominated in the sound mixing category as well. We talked to the film's sound team who showed us how they captured, layered, mixed and edited all the sounds for the scene featuring the song "Shallow," nominated in the Original Song category. Balancing dialogue, Foley sounds, and instruments would be difficult, but the team also had to work with live vocals, which presented the team with and especially tough challenge. What we end with is one of the most Oscar-worthy scenes of 2018.
