Game of Thrones
season one has just won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation (Long Form), according to people tweeting from the event. The Best Novel nomination for A Dance with Dragons
is still pending.
Edit: A Dance with Dragons
lost to Jo Walton's Among Others
Son of Edit: The official statistics confirm that A Dance with Dragons
, like A Feast for Crows
, finished in last place among the five Best Novel nominees. Not a surprise to me, given the controversial fan reception of both books.
Grandson of Edit: Anne Groell, Martin's American editor, was nominated as Best Editor (Long Form), and also came in fifth among the five nominees. I'd say I agree with that, given the structural problems of A Dance with Dragons
, but the winner was DAW's Betsy Wollheim, no stranger to bloated fantasy novels.
