Hugo Nominations: The Picks Are Difficult
The Hugo Awards nominations are out! I was so thrilled when I saw that Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. This is great because they are recognizing web series along with television series. Now comes the hard part… picking only one winner. Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and two other top picks from the category is “Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead” (Doctor Who) and “Turn Left” (Doctor Who). This is a very hard pick because I really want Doctor Horrible to win as recognition and validation of web series yet “Turn Left” deserves to win since it is the best dramatic presentation out of the three.
Some other categories with difficult picks.
- Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form: The Dark Knight vs. Hellboy II vs. Iron Man. The Dark Knight will probably garner an undeserved win due to the last 20 minutes of the film which is a shame since Iron Man is the best dramatic presentation.
- Best Graphic Story: The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle vs. Girl Genius, Volume 8: Agatha Heterodyne and the Chapel of Bones vs. Serenity: Better Days. I’m going to have to give this one a lot of thought they are all deserving of best graphic story.
Which one will you vote for?
Dr. Horrible's 2, So Captain Hammer Says
Nathan Fillion joins Joss Whedon in the desire to make another Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. This is music to my ears but don’t get too excited yet. It appears the only thing keeping us from the next one is their busy schedule.
"He's busy with Dollhouse right now, and I'm a little bit busy with Castle right now, so not in the near future, no," Fillion said.

How to get a Dr. Horrible 2?
They have the way. Dr. Horrible was a smashing success financially thanks to fan support showing that the “master plan” works.
They have the desire to do another show. Neil Patrick Harris in a recent interview shared his views on doing another show.
"Oh, God, I wish I could say there was going to be a Dr. Horrible sequel, but I know there's so many people involved in the creation of it that have a lot of other stuff going on right now… …Mainly, Joss [is doing] Dollhouse, and he has another movie, Cabin in the Woods, that he's doing at the same time. So I don't know that anything would happen soon. But everyone has been super-enthusiastic about it, and I think that means that hopefully something will come."
“I was vague on the how… you have shown me the light.” Now we need to give them the will to do another Dr. Horrible Sing Along Blog.
What we need to do!
Here is the new “Master Plan”: we the fans need to continue to express our love of Dr. Horrible:
- Support the Moist Comic
- Get the DVD
- Most importantly cry out to Joss Whedon for more. At every opportunity, every conversation, and every signing let him know we want more and maybe, just maybe, we could get “…a brand new day”.

Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog DVD Preorders
"Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" will be released on Dec 19th!! It is available for Pre-order now. I might have to buy the DVD even though I bought it through iTunes just to get the special features. The run time for the DVD is listed at 100 minutes, and since the actual show is only around 45 minutes, then that would leave room for about 55 minutes of special features. I know they are going to put in fan submitted applications for the Evil League of Evil, and they recorded a commentary track, but that leaves room for a behind the scenes or something like it.
My main curiosity whether they drop any hints for a Dr Horrible 2. Rumors have been circulating for a while, but there are no real details about it. this would be the perfect place to secret them away.
