Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

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.
