"Avatar" picked up two more trophies Saturday night at the Motion Picture Sound Editors' 57th annual Golden Reel Awards held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles.

The animated "Up" was recognized for best sound effects, foley, dialog, ADR and music in an animated feature. The futuristic allegory "District 9," which was shot in South Africa and New Zealand, claimed the corresponding prize for a foreign film.

"Inglourious Basterds," with its multilingual dialogue, was honored for best sound mixing of dialogue and ADR in a feature. The Michael Jackson documentary "This Is It" scored for best sound editing in a musical feature film.

The MPSE also honored Steven Spielberg with its 2010 Filmmaker Award.

On the TV side, the final episode of Syfy's "Battlestar Galactica" earned two awards -- for long form dialogue and ADR and long form effects and foley.

An episode of "The Penguins of Madagascar" called "What Goes Around" was the winner in the animation categories. Other programs that picked up trophies included "True Blood," "House, M.D.," "Spectacular!" and "Glee."
