Will Who reign supreme at the 2012 Hugos? I thought I knew who I would vote for, were I a Worldcon member, but then I wavered not only over a non-Doctor Who nominee, but also questions about the nature of the awards themselves.

WELL, I completely agree with your second thought. Community happens to be my favorite show and I thought that Remedial Chaos Theory was the second best episode of the series (the first being the Chicken Fingers/Goodfellas episode from season 1) and easily one of the best commentaries on the multiverse story. It rewarded non-regular viewers with a smart, genre story and regular viewers with a great exploration of what the different characters mean to each other.
And I totally won't mind losing to it!
Thanks, and congratulations on your nom and meta-nom.
