Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread
The Hugos are nominated by the attendees, and often comes down to who has the most and most active fans among them. The Drunk Tank's acceptance speech was amusing, but it was hardly a dramatic presentation. Being an active member of the fandom earns you a lot of points and pull amongst the voters though and some of the categories only get a few nominees and often the winners are only by a few votes. You just have to kind of accept that the nomination process is a bit incestuous and move on.
