May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Behold! The 2014 Hugo Award Nominees!

Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Gravity, Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3, Saga, and more high-quality SF/F than you can shake a stick at. That certainly covers a whole bunch of our post tags.

The Hugo Awards honor both pros and fans alike, and as usual, the 2014 nominees provide a superb checklist of things to read, watch, and enjoy. The winners will be announced on Sunday, August 17 at Loncon 3 (aka the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention).

The full list of nominees is available below. And should you need to gush about your favorites, mention absent works you feel are deserving (*cough* Janelle Monae’s The Electric Lady for Best Related Work *cough*), or…ah…have a measured discussion about nominees you may object to, the comments are here for your disposal.

And Now, The Winners Of the First Annual Mary Sues

You over the Oscars yet? Over its lack of surprises and its egregious absence of extravagant musical numbers (AMPAS, how can you have Ellen host and not give her a dance number?) and its general boringness? Good. Me, too. We have a much more fun awards reveal for you today: The 2014 Mary Sues, which is like the Oscars, except only geeky films are in the running and for the last month we’ve invited you to vote on the winners.

And we have something the Academy Awards doesn’t have: GIFS.

Pacific Rim Valentines For Your Jaeger Co-Pilot

In addition to these punderful Pacific Rim Valentines by Benjamin Dewey, we’ve slapped a few miscellaneous geeky Valentines into the gallery as well.

However, this morning a mysterious package arrived at Mary Sue headquarters.  Its contents included what appeared to be a note from Amanda’s mom (“Dear Miss Sue: Please excuse my daughter’s tardiness.  She has recently begun The Master Cleanse, and every time she goes near paper, she tries to eat it.”) and the following pages…
