Well of course as everyone by now no doubt knows Hugo Award nominees are
out. What do you all think?
I find it interesting (and a real slap to Lucas) that SW:Episode 1 was
not nominated. I haven't seen all of the other nominees. Of the ones I
have seen, although Galaxy Quest was fun, and I feel its SF premise is a
bit weak, I would pick The Matrix. Opinions?
As far as novels are concerned, quite a tight race I would think. On the
other hand, though I _like_ Harry Potter, I really hope it doesn't win.
>From what I know of the novels I would put the Bujold, Vinge, and
Stephensen ahead of it.

Opinions, discussion?

Having seen the list of nominees, which doesn't include any of the B5 TV movies
which would have been eligible, I have to say that...I agree with the slate of
nominees.  The list had The Sixth Sense, The Matrix, The Iron Giant and two
others I can't recall right now...and I can't think of ONE of them that I'd
bump for a B5 or Crusade project, much as I like them.

It's an excellent list, and in one sense I'm relieved; if a B5 or Crusade item
had made the final cut, I'd *still* have to vote for the Matrix as best of the
bunch, and I'd hate to have to do that.  This saves me the existential angst.
