Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form
- Doctor Who, “The Angels Take Manhattan”
- Doctor Who, “Asylum of the Daleks”
- Doctor Who, “The Snowmen”
- Fringe, “Letters of Transit”
- Game of Thrones, “Blackwater”
This is the fourth year in a row that Doctor Who has grabbed three of the five slots in this category. That's just insane. Now, I love the show and the episodes they usually nominate are damn worthy, but I wished this group was able to recognize other shows as much as they do this one. Of course, you would think this might cause some sort of vote splitting. You would be wrong. In fact, since the show's reboot in 2005, it has won every single year except one (Joss Whedon's Doctor Horrible won in 2009). So while one of those episodes will probably win, I'm rooting for the other two episodes nominated as they both feature exquisite turning points for two respected series.
Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form
- The Avengers
- The Cabin in the Woods
- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
- The Hunger Games
I'm a tad disappointed not to see Chronicle or even Life of Pi (was that eligible?), but how can I really complain about a short list that contains 3 of my top 10 favorite films of last year? Top geek of the year, Joss Whedon, expectantly double-dipped while Peter Jackson continues his Middle Earth streak with the Hugo Awards by being nominated here after picking up the win for all three of the Lord of the Rings films a few years ago. I'm slightly rooting for The Cabin in the Woods, which surprises even myself, but there you go.
