There seems to be an error in the Novel stats? The list places Death’s End at 5th place and Too Like the Lightning 6th, the runoff breakdown says Lightning won fifth.
I agree with you. Seems it’s an error.
The novel stats have been corrected. Now showing, as you said, Too Like the Lightning 5th and Death’s End 6th.
Congratulations to all the Hugo winners. Although not all the winners were my favorites, all the winners were deserving of the prize.
Any chance the promised recording of the ceremony could be posted?
The recording of the ceremony was made by Worldcon 75, not by the Hugo Awards web site team, and those of us here at the Hugo Awards web site have no control over the recordings. Contact Worldcon 75 through their web site for questions about the material posted to their YouTube channel.
I am delighted to find some favorites receiving awards: Ursula K. Le Guin, Uncanny, and “The Tomato Thief” from Apex!
Why no YA award? ie the brilliant Glass Sentence series.
Why no TV award? Orphan Black!
The members of the World Science Fiction Society at this year’s Worldcon approved the creation of an Award for Best Young Adult Book, which is not a Hugo Award (in part because it would be unfair for the same work to be eligible in two Hugo Award categories simultaneously), but that will be administered in parallel with the Hugo Awards starting in 2018.
Most television episodes are eligible in the category Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. This year, the winner was the episode “Leviathan Wakes” of The Expanse. There is not an award for Best Television Series, only for individual works such as episodes.
I am very confused. I looked up John W Campbell award and got this site and a different winner. http://www.sfcenter.ku.edu/campbell-finalists.htm Are there 2 Campbell awards??
Yes. There are two completely different Campbell Awards. The John W. Campbell Award for Best New Author is not the same thing as the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.
Where can In find Abigail Nussbaum winning story that won 2017 the Fan Category?
Best Fan Writer is not presented for a specific work. It is for the body of the writer’s amateur writing for the year (the calendar year ending December 31 prior to the presentation of the Award). Therefore, there is no “winning story.”
Hi Shay, Nussbaum included the following pieces of representative fan writing work in the 2017 Hugo Voter Packet:
Ex Machina, directed by Alex Garland – April 25, 2016
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, adapted by Russell T. Davies – June 24, 2016
