The Ray Bradbury Award
 Login/Join
 
posted
The SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) organization has announced the formation of The Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation for works including motion pictures, television, Internet, radio, audio, and stage productions. The award will first be presented in 2010 (for works released in 2009). The award will be presented at the Nebula Awards Ceremony.

Given Ray's script-writing accomplishments in the field of stage, screen and television, this is a well-deserved honor. This year's Nebula Awards weekend will take place in Los Angeles from April 24 though April 26, 2009. Here is a link for additional information (it's the same weekend as the Los Angeles Festival of Books):

The website's FAQ about the Nebulas says,

quote:
On three occasions, SFWA has given out the Bradbury Award for excellence in screenwriting. Its role is generally regarded as having been superseded by the Script category of Nebula Award, which was introduced in 1999.


Pfeh! 'Superceded', indeed. Is the Oscar now to be superceded by the "Award for Best Film Released During December Of The Previous Year"?

Um, perhaps if I'd read Richard's post more closely, I would have realized that the SFWA appears to be creating a new Bradbury award.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...

I used to spell it that way too...

The form supercede is commonly considered a misspelling of supersede, since it results from confusion between Latin cedere (“‘give up, yield’”) and sedere (“‘to sit’”).[1] The original Latin word was supersedere (“‘to sit above’”), but the ‘c’ spelling began to be used in Middle French, appeared in English as early as the 1400s, and is still sometimes found. Most dictionaries do not include this spelling; a few list it as a variant, sometimes identified as a misspelling...
