On Sunday, April 25th, 2021, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented the Oscars. We guess that’s cool, but before that, on April 13th, the science fiction and fantasy world listed the finalists for our awards. Yes, the Hugo Award Finalists were announced and we can’t wait until December at DisCon III, the 79th World Science Fiction Convention, for the winners to be announced!
But that doesn’t mean we will just sit around and wait… on this episode of MarkWHO42’s Universe, Mark Baumgarten and Juan Sanmiguel discuss the details of the “nominees” (never use that word). What are the categories? Who are the finalists? And what is Mark’s pet peeve in the Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form category. Yes, there are novels, novellas, short stories, movies, television shows, fanzines, and many more categories up for grabs and we discuss as many of them that we can fit into an hour!
