The Hugo Awards were hosted last night – and hosted by no less than comics and TV writer Paul Cornell. An awards ceremony focusing across a range of different media, two of the awards on the night went to comic properties
Saga continued to win everything it’s ever been nominated for by picking up the award for Best Graphic Story, beating Bryan Talbot’s Grandville Bete Noire, Locke & Key’s fifth volume, Saucer Country’s first volume and Schlock Mercenary: Random Access Memorabilia by Howard Tayler and Travis Walton.
(But, if Paul Cornell was disappointed not to win for Saucer Country, he at least picked up best fancast later in the evening for SF Squeefest!)
The Avengers won Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form, which mere mortals tend to refer to as ‘films’. Writer/Director Joss Whedon was the credited recipient for the award.
Held at the LonestarCon last night, 1848 ballot votes were received – and you can find a full list of winners over at the Hugo Awards’ website.
