Thanks for this post. I'm adding the Literary Omnivore and Hello, Tailor to my list. Some stuff I'm nominating:

Best Novel:
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison. Just a great novel that touches on so many things.
Dreams of the Golden Age, by Carrie Vaughn. This is my guilty pleasure vote. It probably won't get nominated, but you never know.

Best Novelette:
The Litany of Earth by Ruthanna Emyrs. You can read it for free on It kind of deconstructs the Cthulu mythos through the eyes of a woman who was raised by Cthulu cultists and then interned by the government.

Best Short Story:
Tuesdays with Molakesh the Destroyer by Megan Grey. You can read it for free at Fireside Magazine. It has an amazing illustration by Galen Dara.

Best Graphic Novel.
The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang. The mother is just awesome in this. The story is taking an actual 1940's comic and writing an origin story so the character is Chinese-American. The race of the character in the original comic is obscured, but hints at being Chinese-American as the original author was Chinese American, but not allowed to write a Chinese-America character.
Also, I was already considering Ms. Marvel vol. 1. I'm glad someone else it too.

Dramatic Presentation, Short Form
Legend of Korra. I just haven't decided which episode. Probably the series finale.

Best Semiprozine:
Daily Science Fiction. It impresses me that this is still running considering the schedule it uses.
Goblin Fruit. Why can't poetry be considered?

Best Professional Artist:
Galen Dara. She's now in the professional category.

Campbell Award:
JY Yang. I might nominate one of her short stories as well, but it's hard to decide.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
