The Hugo Award Winners

Posted on Updated on

Since I had been posting my voting record for the Hugo, I figured it was only fair to post the final results and how I feel about them.

BEST NOVEL – Ancillary Justice, by Ann Leckie (Orbit US / Orbit UK) Yay! Perfect. This novel is beautiful and all of you need to read it RIGHT NOW.

BEST NOVELLA – “Equoid” by Charles Stross (Tor.com, 09-2013) Eh…well, its well written but I don’t normally enjoy horror and this was rather gruesome for my taste. But no ill will.

BEST NOVELETTE –  “The Lady Astronaut of Mars” by Mary Robinette Kowal (maryrobinettekowal.com / Tor.com, 09-2013) Wish it had been the other, but this story is beautiful, so congrats Kowal.

BEST SHORT STORY – “The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere” by John Chu (Tor.com, 02-2013) YAY! Again, this story was just beautiful and you all need to read it right now.

BEST GRAPHIC STORY –  “Time” by Randall Munroe (xkcd) Yes, yes, yes! Congrats Randall, you deserve it. This was a truly unique piece of work.

BEST DRAMATIC PRESENTATION, LONG FORM – Gravity written by Alfonso Cuarón & Jonás Cuarón, directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Esperanto Filmoj; Heyday Films;Warner Bros.) Grumble grumble grumble…first true disagreement…this was nothing but trite disaster porn…

BEST DRAMATIC PRESENTATION, SHORT FORM – Game of Thrones “The Rains of Castamere” written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, directed by David Nutter (HBO Entertainment in association with Bighead, Littlehead; Television 360; Startling Television and Generator Productions) Eh, I’m not a Game of Thrones fan, I find it all just excessive and unnecessary, but whatever, people like it.

BEST PROFESSIONAL ARTIST – Julie Dillon, congrats, your art is stunning!

BEST FAN ARTIST – Sarah Webb, again, congrats!

And stuff I didn’t vote on…but congrats guys!
