Blackwater Takes the Hugo Award

This year’s Hugo Awards have been announced at LoneStarCon 3, the site of this year’s Worldcon, and it turns out that the George R.R. Martin-penned “Blackwater” took the Hugo Award for best, short-form dramatic presentation. This is something of an upset, breaking the lock Doctor Who has had on the category for the last three years; three separate episodes of that series were among the nominees.

Game of Thrones‘s first season carried away the 2012 Hugo Award in the long form category, with all episodes being treated as part of a single, unified work.
