The Most Real Unreal Award: Call for considerations

tvs awardsThe final award we're calling for considerations for is one I'm most excited about. The Most Real Unreal Award goes to the show that, during the 2007-2008 television season, displayed the most impressive and realistic example of special effects.

Now, before you go assuming we're limiting this to purely science fiction shows, step back for a moment and consider some non-scifi shows that might be fit for such an award. Lost, though with its scifi elements, is considered a drama series, though it's shown some impressive effects this season. Pushing Daisies is another. How about House or the ill-fated Moonlight?

Take your pick amongst the sci-fi and supernatural shows we cover, and I'm sure any one of them could be a great fit for this category: Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, Stargate. What shows would you like to see nominated and what specific aspects of those shows are the most impressive examples of making the "unreal" look real?

Pushing Daisies for Giving us the effect of more than real. Very much a the feeling of Real Life in HD.

New Amersterdam should get a nod for its excellent use of Historically accurate costuming in flashbacks.

Terminator Chronicles for there overall work in real stunt work and CGI to give us frightening effects that seemed very real.

is it me or is there a lot of moonlight spamming going on lately?...it cancelled boo hoo, get over it, i liked moonlight and have nothing against it but when it comes of SFX its not exactly oscar worthy or tvs awards for that matter, also TVS is not responsible for its demise go complain/rally somewhere else ..like CBS headquartes.

I nominate Stargate:Atlantis and 2nd pick would be Eureka...its heavy on effects on each ep and they make it look good.

Moonlight should definitely be submitted for "The Most Real Unreal Award." Great special affects in every show, the vamping out and appearance of flying across the room, etc., etc. The story lines are the best.

Supernatural -- for the scene of Dean's Hell, for the almost eyeball popping scoop with the immortal Doc and for showing us countless monsters without actually 'showing' the monsters and scaring the crap out of us anyway.

Moonlight is an amazing show! Special effects are very believable, story line is awesome. It's so well written, funny, and dramatic at the same time. So definitely - MOONLIGHT!
