2011 HPA Awards Nominees Announced


The Hollywood Post Alliance announced the nominees for the 2011 HPA Awards. The awards recognize the achievements of those individuals who work behind the scenes, with ingenuity and creativity, to create motion pictures, commercials and television programming.

The nominees in the 12 craft categories were chosen from a field of talented and innovative entries in color grading, editing, sound and compositing. This year’s winners will be announced at a gala evening, Nov. 10 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA.

HPA president Leon Silverman stated, “We are proud to be able to honor the incredibly creative work and the artistic achievement of our HPA awards nominees. With more submissions than ever before, this year’s nominations represent the best of the best. These awards shine light on the amazing work that postproduction contributes that is too often overshadowed by the focus on other deserving aspects of the filmmaking process. With the HPA awards we are able to focus on the deep contributions that postproduction makes to help tell the stories that move audiences. We congratulate our nominees and celebrate the work of the entire post production industry.”
