Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

December 5, 2009

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is a 2008 musical tragicomedy short film produced exclusively for Internet distribution. It tells the story of Dr. Horrible, an aspiring supervillain; Captain Hammer, his nemesis; and Penny, their mutual love interest.

The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and actress Maurissa Tancharoen. The writing team penned the musical during the WGA writers’ strike. The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike.

This musical have won numerous awards, namely People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Online Sensation”, and the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. In the inaugural 2009 Streamy Awards for web television, it won seven awards. It also won a 2009 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class – Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs. Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has also been named #15 in Time’s Top 50 Inventions of 2008 (by Time’s magazine).
