Hugo Award Nominees
Hugo Award The Hugo Awards are presented at an evening ceremony during the World Science Fiction Convention. Nominations are as a result of ballots cast by the convention members who vote by mail. They are counted using a weighted method whereby ballot entries, listed by preference, are assigned a value and then tallied. Those who fail to meet the cutoff or have the least number are dropped and the counting is redone until such time as a clear winner appears.

The World Science Fiction Society gives the awards annually for achievements in science fiction. This year's winners will be awarded at Aussiecon 3, the 1999 World Science Fiction Convention, which will be held in Melbourne, Australia, from Sept. 2-6, 1999.
