Hugo Takes Up Residence In LA

It was back in September 2010 that MOON had the honor of winning a prestigious Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, a fantastic achievement, beating fellow nominees Avatar, District 9, Star Trek & Up.

We featured a lovely pic of the award in the original announcement, designed by Nick Stathopoulos, described as “An organic Art Nouveau Hugo”

And now the award itself has found it’s home with Duncan in LA, pictured here with Sam Bell’s original suit from MOON. What a stunna!

Following Cover It Live coverage there were huge cheers at the event, with Hugo Awards Cheryl Morgan saying “Good job Duncan Jones is not here. Would have made complete fool of myself”

Duncan Jones’ reaction came via Twitter

Holy shnikey! A Bafta and a Hugo in the same year! I really CAN only go down-hill from here!! ;’)
