Location Awards unveil nominees

Ceremony to be held on Oct. 24

Some 60 nominees were announced Wednesday for consideration in 13 categories for the 16th annual California on Location Awards.

Joan Collins and Linda Gray will host the awards, to be held Oct. 24 at the Beverly Hilton.

COLA co-founder Sheri Davis also announced that Film LA, the nonprofit org that handles permits for location work, will begin coordinating the California on Location Awards next year.

The kudos, honoring the work of locations professionals, have been presented by Film Liaisons in California statewide.

Nominee Scott Logan, who found railroad tracks in the middle of a California desert for “Iron Man 2,” said demands on the industry are rapidly changing.

“What we are real experts at is making Los Angeles look like the rest of the world. Now we’re being told, more and more, to make other places look like Los Angeles,” said Logan. “Google Earth helps a lot. We can scout in our underwear now.”
