Nebula Results

Are posted on SF AwardsWatch, but you already know them if you were following our live coverage. We must have had something between 50 and 100 people present -- the numbers are hard to count because some people popped in and out for technical reasons, and the tools only count entries, not exits. I thought it was a lot of fun, and hope we can manage to put together something similar for the Hugo Awards this August. Unfortunately, internet access inside the Palais is so expensive (C$375/person was the quote I heard) that we can't easily do what we really want, which is to have our laptops running from inside the event.

Meanwhile, I hope I didn't goof when I posted the results on SFAW. I don't do a lot of the primary entries for the site and I always worry that I've made a mistake. In this case, I actually started with the HTML for the list of the nominees and just removed the ones who didn't win.

Our online coverage turned up what appears to have been an accidental embargo leak on the results that popped up briefly mid-ceremony and then went away. (I kept a screen shot of the page in question.) I take minor cold comfort in learning that others have made such technical goofs; unfortunately, the fact that they happen at all makes award administrators very reluctant to give our embargoed results at all.
