In episodic television, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION received noms in all three categories. All three CSI shows will be competing against each other in the Sound Effects Editing in the TV Short Form category, as the CSI franchise earned a total of seven nominations.

In Student Film, all five nominees were international. BIRTHDAY BOY and CRAWLSPACE are from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, BRAND SPANKING and LLOYD IN THE CORNER come from the National Film & Television School in England, and THE SANDMAN is from the Chopin Academy of Music in Poland.
"Once again, I am very proud that we have such a diverse group of nominees in both our film and television categories. We go out of our way to be as inclusive as possible with our categories and nominees, since so often the work of sound and music editors is overlooked," stated MPSE president David J. Bondelevitch. (Bondelevitch is recuperating at home after three weeks in intensive care following surgery on an infected lung.)
The MPSE is also announced its presenters for two special awards. Legendary sound editor and mixer Walter Murch will present the Inaugural Filmmaker's Award to George Lucas, and supervising sound editor Richard Hymns will present the Career Achievement Award to Gary Rydstrom.
