Gather round, space nerds! The winners of the 2020 Nebula Awards have been announced. The Nebulas annually recognize the best works of science fiction and fantasy published in the United States. They have been voted on and presented by full members of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. (SFWA) since 1966.
The 56th annual awards were presented in a virtual ceremony for the second year in a row due to the ongoing global pandemic. The ceremony was hosted by writer and performer Aydrea Walden. Presenters included Nisi Shawl, Mark Oshiro, Adam Savage, Tobias S. Buckell, Jeffe Kennedy, Carrie Patel, Mallory O’Meara, and Troy L. Wiggins. The awards ceremony took place during the 2021 Nebula Conference Online, which is open to both SFWA members and nonmembers.
Huge congratulations to all of the winners!
