  1. Increasingly the Hugo, once an sf award, is a fantasy award–like all the others…

  2. Immediately after the feed was killed I checked contact information at Ustream’s website and sent this tweet to Brad Hunstable, the company’s Founder:

    eFanzines @efanzines
    @bhunstable Epic failure – shutting down the Worldcon feed for showing clips of nominees for Best Dramatic Presentation Hugo.

    This morning I received a reply from Mr Hunstable:

    Brad Hunstable @bhunstable
    @efanzines we are aware and I will resolve. I’m not happy about this.

    Not very useful after the fact, but at least he took the time to respond.

  3. At this year’s Hugo ceremony something occurred that has not happened in a very long time, in every category (Hugo + Campbell) at least one of the winners was there to accept the award. I am willing to bet that this has not happened for at least 50 years when the Best Dramatic Presentation category was created.

    Does anyone out there know that lat time this happened?
