The 2016 Hugo Awards have been presented! I’ve been interested in seeing how this went because of the Puppies movement. Well, there were a couple awards that weren’t awarded, and Space Raptor Butt Invasion did come in third place for Best Short Story.
The categories I was most interested in are Best Novel and The John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. They were won by The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin and Andy Weir respectively.
These days, people question the validity of The Hugo Awards because of various reasons I won’t be going into. However, I am curious about people’s reaction to the winners. What do you think of the results? Let me know in the comments below.
I have very little to say about the Sad Puppies and Rabid Puppies other than this: They are immature, sad people who have nothing better to do than sabotage a prestigious science fiction and fantasy award. I’m talking about the Hugo Awards. What happened? They got a short story named Space Raptor Butt Invasion by Chuck Tingle nominated. Congratulations, Puppies and Vox Day, you’ve trolled the Hugos yet again, and I find it rather irritating.
The big problem I have with the Puppies is that they are against diversity. And the comment Day made about N. K. Jemisin was rather insulting. Check out the entire article here.
I watched the awards ceremony last year. Many of the awards were not given out because people voted “no award.” It was a rather sad award ceremony. I can only predict a similar outcome this year.
What do you think about this whole situation with the Hugo Award and the Puppies? Let me know in the comments.
