Most people wouldn’t consider themselves science-fiction or fantasy fans, but the winners of the SFX Awards would suggest otherwise. While these shows and writers aren’t all as mainstream as the Oscar nominees, there are still some very big names in sci-fi/fantasy that are winning over new fans who might not considered mutants or time travellers as possible new favourites.
