Since Worldcon is in Australia this year, the Hugo Awards were given out at something like 5:00 AM this morning, American time.  Time Zone dependent.  I certainly didn't stay up for that, but eagerly searched out the winners this morning - as if it were Christmas.

Hurrah for Starship Sofa. I've been following that podcast for just over a year. I'm a big fan of their genre history articles.
