MOON has won the Best Dramatic Presentation, Long category, beating other nominees Avatar, District 9, Star Trek & Up. A fantastic achievement against an outstanding list of fellow nominees.

The award, designed by Nick Stathopoulos is a bit of a stunner, described as “An organic Art Nouveau Hugo”

  1. Congratulations! I loved the sci-fi output of the last year or so.Avatar=EVENT!.District 9=Where did THAT come from? Star Trek=That’s what we want!.But Moon was the closest to the spirit of the great sci-fi of old.Arthur.C.Clark would have loved it. Sam Rockwell was cheated of his little gold fellow,methinks. Again..Nice one!

  2. Many, many congratulations are in order to Duncan, Rockwell and everyone involved in the making of Moon! It absolutely deserved every win (and more that it was snubbed for) and is a modern classic in every way. Wonderful news!

  3. I’m absolutely delighted that Duncan and Rockwell get to own a piece of my artwork! Loved the film to bits. Congrats gentlemen.
