2015 Hugo Award Winners Announced

I'm not a WSFS member, but I am a sci-fi/fantasy fan, so I was interested to see how things would go with the Hugo Awards this year.This part is wow:

"The members of the World Science Fiction Society rejected the slate of finalists in five categories, giving No Award in Best Novella, Short Story, Related Work, Editor Short Form, and Editor Long Form. This equals the total number of times that WSFS members have presented No Award in the entire history of the Hugo Awards, most recently in 1977."

I just spent several hours reading responses (Twitter, blog posts, articles). I should probably stop at some point, because I need to be concentrating on We Are All Completely Fine, which is due in three days.
