  1. why didn’t the 1951 movie The Day the Earth Stood Still not get a [Retro-]Hugo Award?

  2. Jones: Because the 1951 Retro-Hugo Awards were for works generally first appearing or published in 1950. The Hugo Awards are dated based on the year they are awarded, not the “eligibility year,” because in certain circumstances, works may have appeared prior to the “eligibility year.”

    The Day the Earth Stood Still, having been released in 1951, would be eligible for the 1952 Retro-Hugo Awards. Under current rules, the first time Retro-Hugo Awards for 1952 can be presented would be at the 2027 Worldcon.
