Worship the Zefron. Always the Zefron.
I remember reading one of those SGU-haters critique of awakening where they said the visual effects were sub-par. Showed them didn't it.
I'VE GONE WIKI-MAD!!!!

took me a while to remember what this ep was about. then i remembered seed ship
Well I'm glad they got the nomination, they deserve it, the visual effects were excellent. However I don't think they'll win, they're up against some very strong contenders, especially Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones, who frankly have some of the best visual effects I've seen, in a tv show or movie.
I'm guessing the GoT nomination is main for those dragons, I can't remember anything else of any note in the series really let alone the episode. The ones in Boardwalk Empire are so good though that until now I didn't even realise they were visual effects. Very detailed and photo-realistic renders, but I'm not sure they'll win without something a bit more dynamic though. I wouldn't expect SGu to win either of course, but not for lack of quality.
As it is though, while SGU deserved a nomination, I don't think it should win. To me it's a tossup between Thrones and Boardwalk.
that'd be absolutely amazing if SGU won, especially given the cancellation. the vfx guys really deserve the win if only for the ursini! personally though, my favorite vfx episode of season two HAS to be blockade. i mean, flying through a blue giant? how could that NOT get an award?
I loved the visual effects on SGU and I'm really glad they got nominated for Awakening, I loved the way the Ursini looked. I hope it wins, especially since the show is canceled and I won't get another chance to win anything.
Excellent news and a very worthy nomination. I hope they win - while I love BE and GoT, they're both getting another season (and probably more) so they'll have more shots at this particular category. SGU won't.
Given how good SGU's effects were, this is really well deserved. It would be nice if the team that brought us such cool visuals got some recognition!
Goodbye and Good Travels, Destiny!
Stargate has always been outstanding in the Visual effects field:
SG1 recieved 8 VFX (and one score) nods for Children of the Gods (pilot), nemesis, exodus and small victories, revelations & enemies, lost city part 2, and reckoning part 2; but it never won. SGA recieved two VFX nods (and two music nods) for Rising (pilot) and adrift. Also didn't win. The only major (my idea of major may not be yours... ) award won by any stargate was the People's Choice award in 2008 won by SGA. After two nods last year and not winning, maybe sgu will break the Emmy losing streak, but somehow I doubt it...the dragons in GoT are great!!!
All of the above statments are merely my own opinion unless otherwise stated.
I do hope it wins.. even if it is now meaningless to the show (its cancelled)...
But Emmy voters love HBO, so I too doubt SGU can win.
i'm just consistently amazed by the eyes on the ursini. they just look... so... REAL.
Honestly if I was a voter I'd really have trouble choosing between this
