Hugo Award winners

The prestigious Hugo Awards are voted for each year at the World Science Fiction Convention, and this year’s winners were annouced on Saturday. I was very happy to see that ‘Dramatic Presentation: Short Form’ was won by Steven Moffat’s double-bill from the first series of Doctor Who: ‘The Empty Child’ and ‘The Doctor Dances’. I thought those episodes were really, really great. ‘Dramatic Presentation: Long Form’ was won, I suspect overwhelmingly, by Serenity. I haven’t heard of the rest, other than Connie Willis, but shall be adding them to my wishlist 🙂

Update: Joss Whedon’s acceptance speech for Serenity is short but sweet, and read by Morena Baccarin (Inara in the film).
