Guardians of Galaxy won Hugo Awards
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has won the 2015 Hugo Awards for Best Dramatic Presentation in the Long Form category after beating The Lego Movie, Edge of Tomorrow, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Interstellar.
The comic book adaptation is still collecting acclaim a year after its US theatrical release, reported Ace Showbiz. The winners were announced on August 22 morning at the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention held in Spokane, Washington.
Director James Gunn, who also wrote the movie, is elated by the win. “Oh my Gosh, this is so amazing,” he posted on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Orphan Black took the category of Best Dramatic Presentation in the Short Form for the season 2 finale episode By Means Which Have Never Been Tried.
Some other categories were labeled “No Award” since voters either objected to the nominees or didn’t want to partake.
There’s a controversy that the awards excluded white males and conservatives in its list of nominees.
