    Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.
    Well at least The Expanse won a Hugo for season 1.
    Still passes beyond my understanding why it was not nominated for season 2 , because that was better than season 1.
    It also should have been nominated for an Emmy VFX work at least.
    Now that it has moved to Amazon maybe it will get noticed more?
    It is the closest to all that classic prose SF ,quality space opera, (that made the genre so well known) that I have ever seen on TV. (And I have been watching TV for 60 years.)

      I was hoping Dirty Computer would win, to be honest, and put it down for 1st-rank. The Good Place is terrific, but it’s already won, I believe. According to the breakdown, Dirty Computer actually came in first of 1st-rank votes, so at least there’s that.

      Your mention of seasons reminds me that every year I wish that entire TV seasons could be nominated. I can rarely remember what happened in an individual episode. (“Janet(s)” was an exception.) Doing it by individual episodes means that the show can get multiple nominations, which isn’t fair to other nominees (for taking up spaces) nor to the nominated show (which can have its votes diluted).
