Andrea Hairston Joins Sheree Renée Thomas in Hosting the Hugo Awards Ceremony

Andrea Hairston will be joining Sheree Renée Thomas in hosting the Hugo Awards Ceremony 2021 during DisCon III, the World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon), to be held in Washington, DC., December 15-19, 2021.

Malka Older, one of the Special Guests at the convention, had originally been scheduled to co-host, but because her children are too young to be vaccinated, she made the difficult decision to withdraw from in-person events.

For more details of the changes to the 2021 Hugo Awards Ceremony, see the announcement on the DisCon III website.

Voting for the 2021 Hugo Awards closed on November 19, 2021. The Hugo Awards will be presented in a ceremony on the evening of Saturday, December 18, 2021. DisCon III intends to live-stream the ceremony. The link to the convention’s live-stream coverage will be announced closer to the convention. Results will also be posted via the @worldcon2021 Twitter feed as they are announced. The Hugo Awards Website will not be doing live text-only coverage of the ceremony this year.
