The Most Real Unreal Award nominees - VIDEOS

Posted May 30th 2008 4:26PM by Keith McDuffee

At first I was surprised at the low turnout for the call for considerations last week, but it's understandable. Most folks are going to right-out (and, likely, correctly) assume we're talking about purely science fiction shows, and when there are just so many of them, why mention what's already been mentioned a few times already?

The list of nominees follows, along with your chance again to vote for the Reader's Choice award amongst them.

Battlestar Galactica (Sci Fi) --

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (Fox) --

(CW) --

Stargate: Atlantis (Sci Fi) -- Along with the BSG set visit, I had the
pleasure of checking out the sets of Stargate: Atlantis. Watching an episode and seeing a Puddle Jumper flying along on-screen, the same one I saw last year made of wood, is just awesome. Unfortunately SG1 didn't qualify for this award, as it didn't air this past season.

Heroes (NBC) --

So, there you have 'em. go ahead and cast your vote for the Reader's
Choice and we'll be back next week with a list of all the winners.

Sanctuary - Amanda Tapping - Audio Interview

Sanctuaryfans talks to Amanda Tapping

With GABIT fast approaching, we sent our intrepid crew of Sanctuary fans over to spend some time with Sanctuary's leading lady, the ever fab Amanda Tapping.

Grabbing questions submitted by the fans from the forum we threw them at Amanda and here's what she had to say. Click Read More to read a full transcript of the Interview.

A brief excerpt: Since Sanctuary’s pilot is being retooled how different will it feel compared to the webisodes?

AT: "It’s a good question, and I think actually it will feel quite different. I mean, we still want to keep the same graphic novel feel to it. We still want to keep the same, sort of darker elements, but it won’t be as sinister in places and the back stories of all the characters will be a bit broader. Because we are able to take the first hour of webisodes and repurpose it into a two hour, so the witches story becomes a completely different episode, it gives us a lot more freedom. A lot more back story on Will. A lot more back story on Magnus, on Ashley. We don’t give as much away in the pilot. Which for those of you blessed fans who have been following us on the web, will know all the story anyway, but we’re not using as many of the flashback in our first two hours. They’ll come in later. And it’s going to be physically brighter, a little bit, for broadcast. I mean, the web, depending on what you watched it on, the compression was pretty tight, so sometimes it looked really, really dark and you just can’t have that on broadcast television, so we’re brightening it up. And I think the vis effects, as proud as I am of our team for getting stunning visual effects in twelve days, we’ll have five months so they’ll be a lot more polished."
