The most decorated movie of the past year about the most decorated sniper in American military history was nominated for six Oscars:

  • Actor in a Leading Role (Bradley Cooper)
  • Adapted Screenplay
  • Film Editing
  • Sound Editing
  • Sound Mixing
  • Best Picture

While many of the awards have not yet been announced, American Sniper has won at least one Oscar.

Near the beginning of the awards ceremony, the film was awarded Best Achievement in Sound Editing. It was accepted by Alan Robert Murray and Bub Asman.

On Twitter, fans appreciated the work behind the scenes to put together the blockbuster:
