The 2012 Cinema Eye Honors nominations, announced Wednesday in London, were dominated by Tristan Patterson's skateboard doc Dragonslayer, Danfung Dennis’ Afghan embed adventure Hell and Back Again, Patricio Guzman's Nostalgia for the Light, dramatic car racing doc Senna, Clio Bernard's audacious The Arbor, the third installment of the Indonesian family trilogy Position Among the Stars, and Steve James' The Interrupters.

Both Senna and Life in a Day were cited in the editing category, while Errol Morris's Tabloid and James Marsh's HBO look at a 70s chimp, Project Nim, landed nominations in graphic design and animation.
