The film categories were led by Joss Whedon's Marvel's The Avengers which received a nomination for Outstanding Editing and two for Outstanding Compositing. The only other film with multiple nominations was Ridley Scott's Prometheus which picked up two.
For television, the shows which picked up two nominations were Hatfields & McCoys Miniseries, Castle, Boardwalk Empire and Homeland. All other shows received a single mention.
The nominees in the 12 craft categories were chosen from a field of talented and innovative entries in color grading, editing, sound, and compositing for motion pictures, commercials and television. This year marked the largest number of entries in the Awards' history.
In addition to the craft categories, the HPA will also honor winners of the Engineering Excellence Award sponsored by NAB Show, present the HPA Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation in Post Production and the prestigious Charles S. Swartz Award, which recognizes broad and lasting contributions that have advanced and provided a unique purpose to the field of Post Production.
The winners of the 2012 HPA Awards will be announced at a gala ceremony at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA on November 1, 2012.
