Hugo Award Ceremony Live Coverage

You will be able to follow the 2010 Hugo Award Ceremony live from Melbourne using the window below.

Cheryl Morgan and Mur Lafferty will be on hand in the auditorium in Melbourne to introduce the show. Technology willing, Mary Robinette Kowal will join us from Dragon*Con. Kevin Standlee will be moderating your questions. We will also incorporate the official @Aussiecon4 Twitter feed.

The ceremony is due to start at 8:00pm Melbourne time. We may begin coverage slightly earlier, but both Cheryl and Mur have to be at the pre-ceremony reception where important details about the event are announced and nominees have to appear for photo shoots.

Please note that this coverage is text only. We are experimenting with audio and video, but this is the fastest way for us to get the results out to you. It is also more interactive.

Our thanks to Aussiecon 4, and to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, for helping make this possible.

  2. Excellent news! Many thanks for making this happen and for putting it in such an obvious place, too. I’ll do my best to be up in time (or still awake) to follow along throughout the ceremony.

    The Worldcon program lists the Hugos from 7pm. Presumably this is to ensure that the room is available for prep and audience entry.

    I’m starting to get some nerves here, but I am looking forward to this. It’s been tough ever since I was notified two weeks before Easter. Thank you, Cheryl and everyone connected for getting the news out asap.

  6. Kevin says:

    Yes, we see the 7 PM start listed, but we’ve been reassured from the Hugo Ceremony Director that the correct start time is supposed to be 8 PM. We thing 7 PM is meant to be the “doors open” time and there was a bit of a disconnect in communication.

  7. Joyce Katz says:

    Great to be in touch! Congratulations from the Vegrants.

  8. Lloyd Penney says:

    Is 8pm Melbourne time the same as 6am Eastern time?

  9. Kevin says:

    Lloyd: Yes.

    Robert Hole has a helpful table of time conversions for when the Hugo Awards Ceremony is happening in a variety of time zones.

  10. Dave Howell says:

    Well, you have at least one nominee who’ll be glued to his computer monitor waiting to find out what happens.

  11. España Sheriff says:

    As always; thanks for all the hard work making this happen!
