The Hugo Awards is the biggest science fiction award in the world of books, and it has been running since 1953. The winners are chosen by popular vote of members of the World Science Fiction Society, and they are announced at WorldCon.
This year, the organization received 1,368 nominating ballots, which have been narrowed down to a shortlist of finalists in several categories, including Best Novel, Best Short Story, Best Professional Artist, Best Fan Cast, and more.
They also announced related awards (though not Hugos): Lodestar Award for Best Young Adult Book and Astounding Award for Best New Writer.
