2006 Spacey Awards!

That's right, the 2006 Spacey Awards are here! Vote for the best in science fiction and fantasy.

My picks: t: Favourite Movie d: Serenity t: Favourite TV Show d: Battlestar Galactica t: Favourite TV Ensemble Cast d: Stargate SG-1 t: Favourite New TV Character d: Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell t: Favourite FX d: Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

(I didn't vote for either Favourite Video Game or Favourite Action Sequence because I saw none of the games/movies nominated.)

Choosing my favourite TV show, in particular, was tough, since Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG-1, and Doctor Who were all nominated. Eventually I chose BSG, however, since although I find SG-1 enjoyable, BSG is just . . . awesome. I chose SG-1 for ensemble cast partly because I hadn't voted for them as best TV show, but also because I like SG-1's cast a lot.

It was either Mitchell or Vala for this one, since I don't watch Lost and Milton Fine (aka Brainiac) isn't, in my mind, my favourite new TV character. I chose Mitchell because he's a nice new thread that joins the rest of the SG-1 team together now that RDA has gone.

So . . . go vote. Go now. ;)
