Ai-Ling Lee (3/7)

This year’s frontrunner La La Land, a film about two aspiring entertainers enduring the ups and downs of show business, could break Oscars’ record for most wins as it competes in 14 categories, but sound editor Ai-Ling Lee is hoping to make some history of her own. Her work on La La Land earned her an Oscar nomination for sound editing, and if she wins she’ll be the first Asian women to do so. Plus, she and sound editing supervisor Mildred Iatrou Morgan are the first-ever female duo to get the sound editing nod. “It’s surprising (on the nomination), but I feel happy we have more and more women in our sound craft,” Lee told CNN. “Hopefully, there will be more.”
