One week after winning the Emmy Award for best visual effects, the TV seriesGame of Thrones is now nominated for an HPA Award in the category “Outstanding Visual Effects – Television” for the episode “Dance of Dragons”.

The Hollywood Post Alliance Awards honor excellence in postproduction while bringing recognition to the creative achievements of individuals and companies, as well as creative excellence and groundbreaking technologies within the postproduction industry. The HPA Awards are considered the standard bearer for excellence and innovation in the industry.

For a second year in a row, Rodeo FX acted as one of the main vendors on Game of Thrones. The Rodeo FX team created nearly 200 visual effects shots for Season 5, including the spectacular destruction scene of the Harpy statue in Meereen, the city and bridge of Volantis, as well as the spooky Smoking Sea sequence in Old Valyria.

Emmy champ Game of Thrones leads the nominations for this year’s Hollywood Post Alliance Awards, with nods in all four TV categories, for color grading, editing, sound and visual effects.

The winners of the 2015 HPA Awards will be announced during a gala evening, November 12, 2015 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA.
