Hello! I'm Eldritch. You may remember me from such comments as Excited Capslock, Dumb Science Question and Unpopular Doctor Who Opinion. I also contribute to a sci-fi blog called Stellar Four with some other ODeck ladies.

For the past two years, we've been doing an alternative to the Oscars, called the Stellas. We vote on the best picture, director, actor/actress, etc from sci-fi/fantasy films because the Oscars sure as hell don't.

Anyway, last year I crossposted it to the ODeck and got some awesome comments and our Stellas had a big voting turn out. So I figured, let's do it again! These are our 2014 nominees.

I'm thinking of maybe doing best of sci-fi/fantasy TV next year. SFF TV is trouncing the shit out of SFF film lately...
