    Results come in tonight, so let’s all be prepared to get really angry if it doesn’t win considering it’s not up against anything that should come even close to competing.

    Also, hello. We can post new threads again because I alerted the staff it was broken.

    And yes, this is Katydid. Just syncing up my username across all platforms.

    You’ll always be Dana Scully to me.

    I deliberately leave my avatar generally always the same on any given platform to save people confusion. I know too many people on Discord who change both their name and avatar constantly and you have no idea who they are. It’s clearly never occurred to them to do the “Nickname (Regular Name)” format that lets you keep a nickname of the week without confusing people.

    I’ve legitimately found people after months of not talking to them because they changed their name / picture and got lost in the DM history. Goddammit, stop hiding from me.

    You’ll always be Dana Scully to me.

    Good, because I also don’t believe UFOs are alien spaceships or that ghosts are real or that mystical nonsense is scientifically valid.

    The difference is I’m right.

    Except Dana kept getting presented with irrefutable proof for 8 years and kept denying it.

    Is this still the opening line?

    #266621

    But is the Universe sentient?

    It lost, btw.

    #266623

    It lost, btw.

    WHO THE FUCK TO?

    Afterlife or Sex Education?

    #266624

    Ok it is Sex Education. That is the better of the two but still, fucking hell. Who though filming in a British mansion and dressing like you’re in America would constitute design award worthiness.

    This is still newsworthy, if only to give us a central article in which to coordinate mob justice from the comments section.

    To be fair Sex Education is a great show from a visual/design perspective.

    I know that many people have complained about this aspect of it but I have to say I absolutely adore the setting and style that they have gone for – the anachronisms, the bizarre hybrid US/UK illustration of what education and its settings are like, the fact that it makes out that the UK is always warm and sunny and somehow manages to get away with it etc. If nothing else I just enjoy the belief that at some point during production there was an internal discussion along the lines of:

    “We want to make it feel like this is a place out of time so need to find a filming location that hasn’t moved on much since the 1970s”

    “Stick it in South Wales then!”

    #266630

    Oh I really like it too don’t get me wrong. But I don’t understand how, for a “light entertainment show” Red Dwarf wouldn’t immediately clinch any design award just for sets alone, let alone everything else that goes into it.

    “It’s just a bunch of milk crates and MDF that someone has slapped some paint on” is probably what goes through most people’s heads when they think about a sci-fi set!

    I don’t know the ins and outs of the BFDG but there’s probably a fair amount of the usual anti-sci-fi bias going on as well sadly

    I’m pretty sure you deserve an award for making that look good in the first place.
