  • Three categories were dropped for insufficient nominees: Best Dramatic Presentation — Long Form, Best Semi-Prozine, and Best Fan Artist. Rules for awarding Retro Hugos require categories to correspond to those currently defined for Hugo Awards, which is why 1953 film nominees appear in the "DRAMATIC PRESENTATION, SHORT FORM" category -- since they are shorter than the 90 minute divide that separates the current "short form" and "long form" dramatic presentation categories.
