Doctor Who was on that list a few times, I see. Stuff published in Asimov's seemed to dominate the novella, novelette, and short stories categories.

School Reunion should have been replaced with The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit. With that change, I would have been happy with any of the three Doctor Who Episodes winning. (Girl in the Fireplace was the best stand-alone episode of that season, The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit the best multi-part episode of the season).

Dr. Who is a fine program, but I have to think that its a sign of how few SFF shows there are today when they can't come up with 5 episodes from different shows to nominate.

Great, I saw three of the movie nominees but of course not the winner! :lol: I know Pan’s Labyrinth has won a boatload of awards already so its not a shocker.

Interesting how many of the films, and Dr. Who of course, are British centered. Lots of good stuff coming out of the UK these days.

The Brits seem to take drama seriously. They have a strong tradition of drama, going right back to Shakespeare, and I think this can influence the quality of their television shows and movies. I think this drama tradition helps to create a skilled pools of actors, directors, producers, writers, etc.

In the US, theatre often means musicals. In the UK, theatre often means drama. I remember that almost all the plays that were put on in my high school were musicals.

I watch far more British shows than I do American shows.
