It's time to nominate the very best of Stargate Atlantis's second season!
With the promotion of Paul McGillion to series regular in Season Two, we've added the much-awaited category of "Best Beckett Moment." Also new this month is "Best Ronon Moment."
To repeat from last month: As with previous awards, the category of "Best Villain" is meant for a single, individual character. So if you want to nominate the Wraith, the Genii, etc., that would fit into "Best Race." Think of individual characters for the category of "Best Individual Villain."
Let me also encourage you to think outside the box and not necessarily nominate the Wraith, the city of Atlantis, and all the other mainstays that are consistent throughout all five years of the series. We're looking to diversify the award-winners season-by-season, so we may end up disqualifying some of these very common go-to favorites.
You can review the SGA Season One Award winners here.
We'll take nominations in this thread for the first half of the month, and then unveil the award ballot for voting on the GateWorld home page the second half of the month. At the end of July, we'll announce the winners to wrap up this season of the Stargate fan community Rewatch project.
Season One Award Winners
(Remember, keep your noms limited to SGA Season Two only!)
- Best Episode (Season Two)
- Best Sheppard Moment
- Best McKay Moment
- Best Teyla Moment
- Best Ronon Moment
- Best Weir Moment
- Best Beckett Moment
- Best Team Moment
- Best Alien Race
- Best Individual Villain
- Coolest Ancient Technology
- Coolest Alien Technology
- Best Guest Star (based on one specific Season Two episode)
(You can also suggest categories for next month's Atlantis Season Three Awards.) Remember that the best alien race, villain, and technology you nominate don't have to be new to the franchise in Season Two, but they do have to make an appearance in Atlantis Season Two!
Here's How to Nominate:
There's a poll above for the first category, Best Episode. You may vote for up to THREE episodes. (If you vote for any more, we'll have to disqualify all your votes.) You must use the poll for your "Best Episode" nominations to be counted (don't just post them below). Remember, this is just the nomination stage. The top vote-getters will square off in the official poll.
For all other categories, just post below. Two rules:
Please specify the episode! ("That one where McKay says 'Oh, come on!'" won't be counted.)
One nomination per category per person, please! So think about it, watch some episodes, and come back and post. (If we detect fake "sock" accounts stuffing the nominations box, ALL your noms will be disqualified.)
The final ballot will include those with the most nominations, so don't skip over something because someone else already posted it. Nominate what you think is the best of the best!
Nominations will close on or around Wednesday, July 18 (depending on when my son is born). Thanks!
