The CW’s Supernatural has been nominated for a 2016 Hugo Award in the category of Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) for the episode “Just My Imagination” written by Jenny Klein and directed by Richard Speight, Jr.
Speight made his Supernatural directorial debut with this episode. Viewers were first introduced to Speight in the Season 2 episode “Tall Tales” where he appeared as the character of Trickster. In the Season 5 episode “Changing Channels,” the Trickster was revealed to be the archangel Gabriel.
Now in its eleventh season (and recently renewed for Season 12), Supernatural follows the journey of brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) as they fight supernatural evil. The heroic brothers have defeated demons, ghosts, witches, werewolves, vampires and a slew of other monsters. In addition, the Winchesters also prevented the Apocalypse. In the current season, the brothers have their hands full dealing with Lucifer as well as the ominous being known as the Darkness.
