    New Who up for Hugo Award Views: 1757
     Thursday, March 23 2006 @ 01:12 AM EST
    This post from the SciFi Channel bulletin board says that Doctor Who has been nominated for the Hugo Award.

    For details click here

    It's interesting news but I don't think they should have put 3 episodes up for nomination though. That will just split the vote. It's the same thing that kept Babylon 5 from winning against Star Trek until they clicked onto the notion of just putting one episode up for the vote.

    Actually 4 episodes have been nominated, but they are counting two of them as one (Empty Child and The Doctor Dances which makes sense).

    I am not familiar with any of the other entries it is up against except for Battlestar Galactica: "Pegasus" ( a good choice there too).

    Here are the nominees in that same category--

    BEST DRAMATIC PRESENTATION: SHORT FORM (261 ballots cast)
    Battlestar Galactica "Pegasus" Written, Anne Cofell Saunders. Directed, Michael Rymer. (NBC Universal/British Sky Broadcasting)
    Doctor Who "Dalek" Written, Robert Shearman. Directed, Joe Ahearne. (BBC Wales/BBC1)
    Doctor Who "The Empty Child" & "The Doctor Dances" Written, Steven Moffat. Directed, James Hawes. (BBC Wales/BBC1)
    Doctor Who "Father's Day" Written, Paul Cornell. Directed, Joe Ahearne. (BBC Wales/BBC1)
    Jack-Jack Attack Written & Directed, Brad Bird. (Walt Disney Pictures/Pixar Animation)
    Lucas Back in Anger Written, Phil Raines and Ian Sorensen. Directed, Phil Raines. (Reductio Ad Absurdum Productions)
    Prix Victor Hugo Awards Ceremony (Opening Speech and Framing Sequences). Written and performed, Paul McAuley and Kim Newman. Directed, Mike & Debby Moir. (Interaction Events)
    (There are seven nominees due to a tie for fifth place)

    Cheers,
    Louis

    I almost hate to say it but my money's on BSG because Pegasus was an excellent episode (that cliffhanger was a doozy) and there are too many Doctor Who ones to choose from. They should have just submitted Dalek or The Empty Child/Doctor Dances (classed as one story).

    Agreed. While I do love this new Who series, "Pegasus" was probably the best episode of any TV series I've ever seen.

    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    Battlestar Galactica "Pegasus" may just get it. As already pointed out, it's a powerful episode. BSG also won a Hugo last year for "33".

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Oooh, I might argue that one with you. I think that Babylon 5's episode "Severed Dreams" was the best I've ever seen. It wins with me because it was the episode that finally crossed the line of a sci-fi series that had built up tension and actually had a pay off. I was fully expecting a Star Trek style "oh wait, it was getting all tense there folks but just at the last minute everything turned out ok - phew!" ending but instead the s**t hit the fan and everyone kicked off. Classic stuff (and a previous Hugo winner if I remember rightly)!

    That's excellent news - especially bearing in mind the competition. Hopefully the Beeb will have something up on the site soon.

    That's awesome. I agree that Pegasus was an excellent program as well. I wonder how Dalek and Father's Day ranked also.

    As a big Joss Whedon/Firefly fan I'm also very excited to see that Serenity won for Dramatic Presentation: Long Form.

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    And, according to Paul Cornell, "Dalek" came in second and his own "Father's Day" was third. All three eps beat out Battlestar Galactica! (Not that BSG isn't a great show, too...)

    Wow. That answers my question. That rocks. So much for splitting the vote.

    There is a breakdown of the voting here.

    It's not nearly as big as the BAFTA but this is great news.

    I noticed on that breakdown that BSG won each indiviual round of voting until it was solely up against Doctor Who two-parter.

    So, whomever stated that Doctor Who's chances of winning was diminished by the number of episodes submitted was correct.

    Strange voting, I mean the system. It took me a bit to figure it out. But now it does make complete sense. Yea for the Doctor.

    Btw - is "Jack Attack" that stand alone Disney/Pixar short on what the baby from The Incredibles was doing while everyone else was fighting the bad guy in the first movie? Does anyone know?
