Space.com is reporting that at this year's World Science Fiction Convention, taking place in Chicago, 'Galaxy Quest' was presented with a Hugo award for Best Dramatic Presentation. The film managed to beat several high-profile movies, including 'The Matrix', 'Being John Malkovich' and 'The Sixth Sense'.

Director Dean Parisot and writer Robert Gordon were both present to accept the award, making this the first time in several years that the recipients of the Best Dramatic Presentation award were actually there in person. "To be acknowledged by this community is so gratifying," said Gordon at the event. "The script was written as a valentine to the fans, because they are so unappreciated."

More on this can be found in the Space.com article on the Hugos, as well as the site's interview with the winners.
