Who Misses Out on Hugo Awards

Even though we’d like to, you can’t win them all. And we’ve had a pretty good run of wins at the Hugo Awards over the past three years. This time it wasn’t to be and three episodes from Series 7 lost out to the Game of Thrones episode, Blackwater:

Of course as an American production so it’s got a MA-HOO-SIVE budget alongside the edgy confidence that comes with a post-watershed show. It’s dark, gritty and has a healthy dose of violence, gore and ‘whoring’. Whereas Who has a public service budget, fantastical whimsy and Matt Smith’s alien Jagger-swagger. In fact, they’re two such different beasts they barely seem comparable.

So maybe it’s a shame that we lost. But you couldn’t lose out to more highly regarded, complex and thrill-instilling series. And if it were so easy to win a Hugo that we got them FOUR years in a row, it would hardly seem worth it. So, well done, Game of Thrones – enjoy the glory. Just watch your back because Who is just hitting its stride!
