2MTL 264: Who Should Win the Hugo?

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.

Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) (512 ballots)

"The Doctor's Wife" (Doctor Who), written by Neil Gaiman; directed by Richard Clark (BBC Wales)

  1. 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!
