  1. Yay! And eek! I am so behind on my reading. But I did put in a couple things to start and received my email confirmation.

  2. @Andrew (not Werdna): Funny about that. Time flies like bananas, as the old saying goes.

  3. Seems like less than a month ago the 2021 ceremony was going on.

    Yup, the consequences of (hopefully) moving back to a more normal schedule.

  4. Hi,
    Very very new to this. Any recommendations for 2021 eligible works that were translated into English?

  5. No special award/video game? I was looking forward to that. We really enjoyed discovering Spiritfarer and Hades especially

  6. I’m just going to put a word in for Arcane, the Netflix series.

    I’m really looking forward to nominating this year. I’ve actually read/watched enough to feel like I can contribute!
