Weekend Awards Coverage

Kevin and Cheryl are at Eastercon where Internet access is patchy but other people appear to be taking up the slack. Here’s what’s happening.

The Hugo nominees will be announced at a ceremony at Norwescon on Sunday (24th) which will be mirrored at Eastercon. The timing is 2:00pm Pacific, 10:00pm UK. Renovation, this year’s Worldcon, is handling all of the tech, though it looks like whatever they do will be on the official Hugo website. Internet access in the UK event is not great, but we should at least be able to tweet (hopefully just RTing what Renovation puts out).

Before that, at 7:30pm UK on Saturday, the BSFA Awards will be announced. Again we will probably be reduced to tweeting.

Elsewhere, the Philip K. Dick Award will be announced at Norwescon, and the Ditmars and Tin Ducks will be announced at Swancon. We’ll keep an eye out for announcements and relay them as soon as we can.

  1. [...] Internet access is patchy. I can get the iPhone to work on the hotel wifi in convention space. We have free wired internet in our room, and the MiFi also works here, but not in the convention space. Thankfully we don’t have to do much. I’ve been banned from doing official Hugo coverage, but the Renovation people have kindly taken up the baton and will be doing their own live event. Details of that and other award coverage is over at SFAW. [...]
