“Gravity” nominated for Hugo Award

Since its release in October, Gravity, directed and produced by Alfonso Cuarón and David Heyman, has won countless honors – most recently at the Oscars. Now, the highly-praised film has earned another honor as a nominee for a 2014 Hugo Award.

The Hugo Awards are a prestigious honor presented each year to works of science fiction and fantasy. Although the award is most famously given to the best novels and short stories of the genre each year, they also honor a number of other mediums, including Best Dramatic Presentation, the category in which Gravity has been nominated.

Gravity will compete against several other blockbuster films from this year, including Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Iron Man 3. The 2014 Hugo Award winners will be announced several months from now at the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, Loncon 3, in London, England, on August 18.

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
