The Society of Camera Operators 2010 Nominations Include Salt, Hereafter, and 24

Around awards season, I'm always interested by the nominations of guilds or other groups with a specific technical focus. Of course, the Society of Camera Operators found a way to honor The Social Network like everyone else. But Hereafter and Salt, which won't contend for many awards as complete works, also earned nominations alongside The Town and The Fighter for feature film camera operator of the year. The nominees in television are similarly eclectic. The final season of 24 missed out on a swan song at the Emmys and the Golden Globes, but is recognized here with House, Bones, Sons of Anarchy, and Raising Hope. Hit the jump for the full list.
