Hayao Miyazaki Lifetime Achievement Award

This weekend they held the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards, and as part of that they gave the Lifetime Achievement Oscar to Hayao Miyazaki. I have ranted often enough about what an amazing craftsman, director, animator, writer, and on and on he is. I think this time I will let the [...]

IPPAwards 2014

The iPhone Photography Awards are exactly what they sound like: the best pictures taken with an iPhone and entered into the contest.

The Locus Awards have been handed out for the last 33 years, and often predict who will end up being nominated each year for the Hugo Awards, the prime fan chosen set, and the Nebula Awards, the main industry selected prize group.

Hugo Nominee Shortlist posted

The short list for this year’s 2012 Hugo Awards was posted online this weekend, and includes a ton of great authors and programs. But I have to say, as much as I am excited about books from my favorite authors, it is the authors I don’t know about who made the list that excites me [...]

Visual Effects Awards

The 10th Visual Effects Society Awards were handed out this past Tuesday, and as is often the case, a small number of shows got several awards each. Transformers: Dark of the Moon seemed to get the most (no, I didn’t count them, so I could be wrong), but Hugo, the animated Rango, the semi-animated live [...]
