First. yay.
I hope Shrine wins the category.
It deserves a Nebula.
It was well played and well worked.
Best wishes and good luck!

I don’t think that The Shrine will win, not with this competition, but it’s still awesome. This was one of the best eps of SGA’s mediocre last season and it deserves the praise.

this is wonderful news! Sadly, I must agree with katikatnik, but still, this is a big recognition to the show and especialy to David Hewlet’s amazing acting skils!! I’ll miss Rodney :(

To say i’m very surprised at this is a bit of an understatement, I thought it was one of the worse episodes of the season *shrugs*

I could think of far better episodes than this!

While i agree it wasn’t the best of season 5, @ least in my opinion, it was certainly a very good character driven episode.

I’m very surprised. I didn’t find the Shrine to be a well-written episode. There were a few nice moments, but that was mainly due to the actors, not the writing. Other than that, it was a fairly emotionless story, with some glaring problems. If season five hadn’t been such a disappointment all around, I don’t think this mediocre effort would have stood out at all.

Wow I think it would be great if this episode wins an award. Wouldn’t the SciFi execs regret cancelling the series if they realized it could still win awards? I bet they would! My favorite part in this episode was when John and Rodney were just hanging out, which I feel wasn’t shown on screen as often as it should have been shown. Rodney’s acting was A+. Also, the scene where Woolsey shares his experience of having a father with Alzheimer’s just makes the show connect with the audience. The rest of the episode was just mediocre, but these two… Read more »

The Shrine wasn’t the best episode of season 5 by far but David Hewlett’s performance was amazing. If the last two minutes of the episode didn’t exist, it would have been a heck of a lot better IMO.

Still, a Nebula Award nomination. Wow. For a show that was cancelled to make room for something “better.” Honestly, the decision makers should be ashamed.

For a second I thought it said NSFW instead of SFWA lol. But yes, that was a great episode. I think they should separate their mediums for each category, though. “The Dark Knight” (a movie) versus “The Shrine” (a tv episode) is like David vs. Goliath. It’s apples and oranges. They don’t mix. The Dark Knight is much more well-known than SGA, and although the voters are supposed to be unbiased, many of them may have already seen Dark Knight and not The Shrine. And Batman is a brand most, if not all, of them have loved and been familiar… Read more »

This was an awesome episode. It reminded my husband of his father who suffers from Alzheimer’s. We were BOTH crying. I hope they win. They so deserve it.

Yeah it was a very good episode. still a huge shame it was canceled (series) I hope it wins…batman script wise is well not that great..the movie it self was boring in parts…Heath Ledger was the only good part if the film and the action/blow up scenes..like the hospital.

This is great news. The Shrine was one of the few bright spots in the season. I truly hope SGA wins.

I though The Shrine was an amazing, standout episode. The script was solid, and the actors were phenomenal. David Hewlett was of course great, but I was extremely impressed with Joe Flanigan in this episode. This role called for him to show a depth of emotion while paradoxically playing a man who does not show overt emotion, and JF did it to perfection. Without dialog, without any scenery-chewing emotional outburst, he got the feeling across with his eyes and with the way he held his body, tensed against something he had no way of fighting. The night time scene between… Read more »

I really like this episode and i agree 100% with SheppardsPDA, David Hewlet acting was amazing, I`m really gonna miss him, it was my favorite character in Atlantis.
I think is strange that compete a movie, a tv episode and an animation movie, I mean, is not very fair.
