‘Gravity’ Continues to Score at HPA Awards

Hollywood Post Alliance honors post-production artisans and technology

Attendees at the 9th Annual HPA Awards on Nov. 6 found themselves in a bit of a time warp as films like “Gravity” (pictured) and “Captain Phillips” continued to gather honors long after last year’s awards season.

That’s because HPA’s eligibility period ends in late summer and does not coincide with the time spans recognized by the Oscars, the Golden Globes and various guild awards.

Gravity” scored a win for outstanding color grading – feature film and outstanding sound – feature film, and “Captain Phillips” won the honor for outstanding editing – feature film.
