Christopher Nolan’s Inception won the award for best long-form dramatic presentation, with the Doctor Who Series 5 finale “The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang” taking the Hugo for best short-form dramatic presentation.

Awesomely, and speaking of Doctor Who, Mad Norwegian Press’ Chicks Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the Women Who Love It won the award for “best related work.” (I’ve been a fan of Mad Norwegian since their I, Who series of “unauthorized” guides to the original Doctor Who novels and audio adventures that preceded the TV series’ relaunch in 2005. I’m just cool like that.)
