1. SF Signal won for Best Fanzine. It is the first blog ever to win. Amazingly well-deserved. Broken is the domination of the sf hardboots! (Well, not really. But ya get tired of seeing the same nominees every year, even though they be worthy nominees.)
2. Jo Walton won the Hugo for Best Novel for Among Others, beating out Martin and Mieville, among others. Go, rasfw alums!
3. Seanan McGuire won a group Hugo, as part of the SF Squeecast podcast. She was nominated several times this year under her own name and pen names, about which the host even joked at the start.
4. Betsy Wollheim was finally nominated for Best Editor (longform), after 47 years of editing some of the best books in the business. She noted in her speech that her father, Donald A. Wollheim (early early sf fan, editor, and founder of DAW Books) had never won one at all.
(Which I hadn’t realized, and which stinks. Of course, he was a famous fan-feudist when young, which might have had something to do with it.)
5. Ursula Vernon won a Hugo for Graphic Artist for her marvelous epic webcomic, Digger. If you’ve never read it, start now!!
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!
