The 2016 Nebulas were awarded tonight at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. Female authors dominate this year’s awards, which include, as always, several works also nominated for Hugos. In a year that saw many strong SF movies, the Bradbury winner might surprise some people, and delight others.
The winners are:
Uprooted, Naomi Novik*
Binti, Nnedi Okorafor*
“Our Lady of the Open Road,” Sarah Pinsker
Best Short Story:
“Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers,” Alyssa Wong*
Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation:
Mad Max: Fury Road.*
Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy:
Updraft, Fran Wilde
*These works have also been nominated for a 2016 Hugo (in the case of Alyssa Wong, the story has not been nominated, but she has a nomination for Best New Writer).
