Suggested 2015 Hugo Award Nominees (if I was a WSFS member, I'd nominate...): Dramatic Presentation

I'm actually really new to these kinds of things. But, I've been reading up on the Hugo Awards, and I got really interested. So I've decided to compile a list of what I'd nominate in certain categories if I were a voter. Who knows, you guys might see something you missed and be more moved to nominate it.
(Note: This is more of a shortlist of works that could be nominated next year, so it goes over 5 entries for each. The higher ones on the list are the ones I personally want to be nominated more. I've listed the works that aren't out yet at time of writing separately.)

Long Form
Snowpiercer (top pick)

Guardians of the Galaxy

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Over The Garden Wall

Big Hero 6

Edge of Tomorrow


Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Under The Skin

Not out yet: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Short Form
Doctor Who: Listen (top pick)

Doctor Who: Mummy on the Orient Express

Game of Thrones: The Children

Outlander: The Garrison Commander

Space Dandy: A World Without Sadness, Baby

Orphan Black: Things Which Have Never Yet Been Done

Almost Human: Unbound

Annedroids: New Pals

I might edit this if more things come out. I know I want to do more for the other categories.

A note about Game of Thrones

There is an overwhelming chance that Game of Thrones, Season 2 will be nominated, just as Season 1 was last year, in the Long-Form category, so my advice is to not waste your nomination votes for individual episodes of Game of Thrones in the Short-Form category, as they will be disqualified.

“Space Race”, Parts 1 and 2, Archer
