Doctor Who, Game of Thrones saga dominate sci-fi’s Hugo Award nominations

A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. MartinToday the 2012 nominations for the prestigious Hugo Awards were announced simultaneously at several Easter weekend sci-fi and fantasy conventions in the U.S. and UK.

The nominations for best novel included Jo Walton’s Among Others, George R.R. Martin’s A Dance With Dragons, Mira Grant’s Deadline, China Mieville’s Embassytown and James S. A. Corey’s Leviathan Wakes.

Long-form dramatic presentation nominations went to Captain America: The First Avenger (which featured Hugo Weaving as a villain), the entire first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Hugo (!) and Source Code.

Imagine if Hugo wins a Hugo!

Doctor Who dominated the short-form dramatic presentation category, with nominations for the fifth-season episodes “The Doctor’s Wife” by Neil Gaiman as well as “The Girl Who Waited” and “A Good Man Goes to War.” An episode of Community (“Remedial Chaos Theory”) and The Drink Tank’s Hugo Acceptance Speech also were nominated. (That last one seems exceedingly meta …)

Hugo winners will be announced this fall at Chicon 7 in Chicago. For a full list of nominees, from novellas, novelettes and short stories to related works, fanzines, editors and artists, head over to the Chicon website.
