Hugo Awards Meme

Picked up from The Slush God:

If you nominated for the Hugos this year, copy this list and bold the selections that you actually nominated. Underline selections that you've read/seen (or tried to read/view and gave up on, etc.) but didn't nominate. If you've passionately dislike one of the selections, italicize it (in addition to underlining it). If you like, add a pick of your own to each category that you feel should have made it, by placing it in [brackets] at the end of each category list.

You disliked The Prestige?

Andrew Wheeler said...

Nina: that was actually a HTML mistake; I meant to underline it, and I've now fixed that. I enjoyed The Prestige, actually, though I thought the big "surprise" at the end was pretty obvious ten minutes before -- my wife, the non-SF reader, got it, and we didn't even think it would be a surprise.
