The finalists for the 2019 Hugo Awards were announced online on April 2 by Dublin 2019.
The Hugo Awards are a set of prestigious literary awards given annually for the best science fiction or fantasy works and achievements of the previous year.
Two episodes of Doctor Who Series 11 were named for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form:
Rosa, written by Malorie Blackman and Chris Chibnall, directed by Mark Tonderai
Learned that Doctor Who-Rosa has been shortlisted for a Hugo Award (Best Dramatic Presentation – Short Form), along with @VinayPatel's excellent Dr Who episode in the same category. Feeling so blessed to have co-written the episode with Chris Chibnall. 😀 #Carltondancing https://t.co/hG2IlYUSQq

Demons of the Punjab, written by Vinay Patel, directed by Jamie Childs
As a kid, all I’d write was sci-fi, obsessed with fantastic worlds. Then terrible events force you to confront reality instead and you understand you’ll never launch a rocket without clearing the launch pad first. Grateful to Who for letting me do both. Hugo nom means the worlds.
