Grand Moff’s Noms

Lots of nominations are flying around for the various awards that traditionally take place at this time of year, with Steven Moffat getting “the nod” for his visions for Doctor Who and Sherlock in not one but two different awards!

First up is the Saturn Award which lists A Christmas Carol and Sherlock in the Best Television Presentation category.

Best Television Presentation:

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol         (BBC America)

Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special           (NBC)

The Pillars of the Earth                       (Starz)

Sherlock                                              (PBS)

Spartacus: Gods of the Arena             (Starz)

The Walking Dead                              (AMC)

The Saturn Award is now in its 37th year, and is the annual award of The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films and covers TV, movies and stage.

Meanwhile, the Broadcasting Press Guild nominates Moffat in the Writers Award category for both Doctor Who and Sherlock (where Mark Gatiss and Series 6 writer Stephen Thompson are included in the nomination), while Sherlock goes up against Downton Abbey for the title of Best Drama Series.

  1. I haven’t seen the Kung Fu Panda holiday special, but if anything on that list loses to it I’m going to be a very unhappy panda.

    Ironically, the fact that both Doctor Who and Sherlock are up in the same awards might split the vote, so neither wins.
