Last week, the nominees for this year’s Hugo Award were released. The Hugo Awards are presented at WorldCon by the World Science Fiction Society, decided by fan votes at the con. This year’s con in Wellington, New Zealand, will now be hosted virtually, so the winners will be announced via online video. We’re really excited to see some of our favorite books, movies, and TV shows up for awards!
