2014 Hugo Awards announced at Loncon 3

The 2014 Hugo Awards were awarded at Loncon 3 less than an hour ago.

This year’s awards had the largest number of voters for any Hugo Awards and, with more than 60 countries represented in the convention’s huge membership (10, 762 including 3, 323 not attending, as at Sunday evening), the voters would also have been from many countries. So the results are not all as expected by some US and UK fans.

Here are some of the winners

  • Best Novel – “Ancillary Justice” by Ann Leckie
  • Best Novella – “Equoid” by Charles Stross
  • Best Dramatic Presentation (Long form) – “Gravity”
  • Best Dramatic Presentation (Short form) – “Game of Thrones” Rains of Castamere
