Nominating for the Hugo

The deadline to nominate for the Hugos is fast approaching. I remind people that the video of the Curiosity landing is eligible and worthy of a nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.

For Graphic Novel, the two I've read that I plan to nominate are:

Unwritten: Tommy Taylor and the War of Words, by Mike Carey and Peter Gross
Castle Waiting, by Linda Medley

For Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form, I've narrowed it down to six.

John Carter
Wreck-It Ralph
The Avengers
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Folks will notice some glaring omissions from the list. It's possible our tastes vary -- but it's more likely that I haven't see the movies you're thinking should be on the list. I missed both Hunger Games and Cabin in the Woods, for example.

For written fiction, I have just about nothing. I read for the Mythopoeic and Hugo awards, which tends to mean that I'm a year behind what's current.

I did read "Fade to White" by Catherynne Valente and will likely nominate it once I figure out whether it's a short story, novelette, or novella. It's excellent.
