Re: Hugo Nominations Announced.

Works about, related to, or parodying the genre have generally been allowed if enough members think they deserve a nomination. Which in this particular category has led to a lot of nominations for cliquish, self-congratulatory stuff like convention comedy sketches, Gollum's acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards, and the music video "Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury."
Don't forget, a Star Trek fanfilm (New Voyages' "World Enough and Time"), too. But something like "The Old Negro Space Program" gets disqualified. (ETA: Oops, sorry, it was the Nebulas that disqualified "The Old Negro Space Program" from their ballot. As you were.)

Is it wrong that I really really really wanted "Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury" to win the year it was nominated?
