If I could vote for the Hugos...

WorldCon is expensive. I didn't even go when it was somewhat local. Well, I was in the vicinity. Met up with someone there. But didn't actually attend. It's even expensive just to be able to vote. Still, I'm sure you're all curious as to how I would vote if I could. Because my ego's just big enough for that. :)

Best Novel:

I've only read two of the nominees, but I have to say Little Brother edges out Graveyard Book for me.

Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form:

I've seen all but one of these. Not too thrilled with any of them, but narrow it down to Dark Knight and Wall-E and I go for Wall-E.

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form:

I'd go for Doctor Who, but I recently rewatched both of the episodes nominated and they're not that great. Not like Blink, or a few other good ones. So I'm going to go for Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog for this one.

Those are the three I'd feel qualified enough to vote for. But if I went so far as to pay to vote, I might make an effort to decide on a few other categories. Hunt down some stories or whatnot.

I'll conclude with some numbers, which I'm sure someone else has compiled, but it pleases me to count.

Novel: 5 men, 0 women
Novella: 4 men, 1 woman
Novelette: 4 men, 1 woman
Short Story: 3 men, 2 women
Related Book: 4 men, 3 women (afaik)
Graphic Story: 15? men, 5? women (more uncertain on this)
Best Editor, Short: 3 men, 2 women
Best Editor, Long: 3 men, 2 women
Professional Artist: 5 men, 0 women (afaik)
Fan Writer: 4 men, 1 woman
Fan Artist: 4 men, 1 woman (afaik)
Best New Writer: 4 men, 1 woman (afaik)
