^ Yet the alternative timelines were used in a science fiction type setting Sci. I know you believe that Abed was imagining them, but if it was or not doesn't matter in this context. They were used in a science fiction setting and thus qualify IMO.
Well, by that logic, did The Big Bang Theory
qualify when Leonard imagined Sheldon reproducing through mitosis? Or Scrubs
qualify for a Hugo every time J.D. imagined himself in a sci-fi setting? Or The Wonder Years
when Kevin imagined himself and his friends as the characters from "Spock's Brain?" Etc.
I just think it's a stretch. Mind you, if
there were a reason to think "Remedial Chaos Theory" wasn't Abed's imagination, I'd agree that it qualifies.
But I have my own issues with the Hugos. (Nominating the entire first season of Game of Thrones
in the Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form category? Nonsense; it's not a single long dramatic presentation, it's a collection of short-form dramatic presentations. And awards acceptance speech skits should never be nominated alongside full episodes in the short-form category. But I digress. End rant.)
