Thanks for posting this. I didn't even realize it was that time. I haven't read hardly any of this, although I did see Pan's Labyrinth and thought it was pretty good.

Lisa said...

I second the kudos to Pan's Labyrinth.

Wow, what a, um, masculine trophy!

Shauna Roberts said...

The Dr. Who episode that won was great, one of those rare TV shows that still in one's head long after seeing it. I haven't read/seen the rest.

Sidney said...

I'm like Charles, unfortunately I've not read many of the pieces. I agree on "Pan's Labyrinth" though and also "The Girl in the Fireplace" episode of Doctor Who.

Lisa said...

P.S. Had to come back to say Candice's comment almost made me spit water all over my laptop!

Charles, Shauna, and Sidney--I admit I haven't read most of the books listed, except for Naomi Novik's series (which is excellent, and she well-deserves the award) and the film Pan's Labyrinth (which also is excellent). I like to keep up with these award lists partly so I can pick up some of the winning entries to read. And, of course, to know what's going on in the market and what's winning critical acclaim.

C.S. and Lisa--LOL. Yes, what a phallic symbol, eh?
