In the feature film category, Mitch Dubin was honoured for his work on Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. He had been competing against Peter Robertson for Anna Karenina, Duane C. Manwiller for The Hunger Games, Colin Anderson for The Master, and Lukasz Bielan for Life of Pi. Peter Robertson, however, was presented with the previously-announced Historic Shot Award for his work on the Dunkirk Beach Steadicam shot on another Joe Wright film Atonement.
In television, Andrew Voegeli was the winner for Breaking Bad. His competition had been Nick Davidoff for Homeland, Tony Gaudioz for House, Chris Murphy for Newsroom, and Jeff Muhlstock for Smash.
