HPA kudos handed out

'Dark Knight,' 'Iron Man,' 'Wall-E' honored

Three of the year’s biggest box office hits got feature film kudos Thursday night as the Hollywood Post Alliance handed out the third annual HPA awards.

“The Dark Knight” took top honors for editing, “Iron Man” took the kudo for color grading using digital intermediate and “Wall-E” was saluted for its audio post.

The evening’s only multiple winners were ABC skein “Pushing Daisies,” which was saluted for color grading and editing, and Jaguar’s “XF Hush” commercial which also won two awards.

“CSI” took top honors for television audio post.

The HPA Award calendar ends early and so 2007 holiday releases competed with features released through summer 2008.

Among previously announced winners, Elizabeth Daly, dean of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, was presented the first Charles S. Swartz award, recognizing “broad and lasting contributions that have advanced and/or provided some unique purpose to the field of Post Production.”
