Last Two Days to Nominate for the Hugos
Posted on March 10, 2012 Posted by John Scalzi 4 Comments
As the Toastmaster of this year’s Worldcon, I feel it is incumbent upon me to remind you that you have only until Sunday, March 11, 2012, 11:59pm Pacific, to get in your Hugo (and Campbell!) Award nominations in for this year. If you are able to nominate but don’t, I’m pretty sure that the rest of your life will be lived with the bitter taste of regret ashen in your mouth. Yes, that’s exactly how it will be.
Here is the online nominating ballot. You will need your membership number and your Hugo Voting PIN. Check your e-mail queue; there’s likely to be an e-mail about it in there (presuming you are a qualified nominator).
Here’s a list of works/people eligible, from authors/creators. Here’s a list of recommendations from fans. And, if you need it, here’s what stuff of mine is eligible this year.
Go forward and nominate, my friends!
No ashes for me, I voted early. I voted often. Well, once, but that’s more often than nonce.
See you folks at Worldcon in Chicago.
I put together a GoogleDoc of eligible works, with lists gathered from numerous sources as well as several other people doing input. I haven’t checked every item for accuracy, and it seems quite certain that we’ve missed some, but it does a good job of providing an overview. The tinyurl for it is http://tinyurl.com/6to9eld
I never got a PIN, oops. I guess I won’t likely get one in time :(.
Andy, if that happens again when the voting deadline is a few hours away, try sending email to the Hugo Administrator. There’s no guarantee, but in the past, administrators have stayed up and online, responding to PIN requests and other questions right down to the wire.
For example, I was chatting on Skype with Hugo Administrator Diane Lacey at 1:30 am March 12, i.e., 22 hours after you posted your comment here on Whatever. At that point, she was aiming to stay up until 3am Eastern Daylight Time when nominations closed. I’m sorry I didn’t see your comment here before the deadline passed.
Of course, if you’re a member of Chicon 7, you can go ahead and ask for your PIN now. There’s no need to wait for the voting deadline to draw near. :-)
