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 were presented at
the Millennium Philcon, the World Science Fiction Convention, on Sunday evening, September 2, 2001, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The first in each category (and fully in bold) is the winner while the others are nominees, listed in no particular order.
