Will you be sharing your picks?
I confess to not having read everything but I did read the novels and some of each of the other categories that seemed to have a few good stories to vote for. I wasn't thrilled overall this year.
Knowing that it isn't professional for you to mention the slush pile, on the flipside, did you find anything that stood out as particularly good in your opinion in any of the categories?

Artist categories
The most recent two posts at ObsidianWings (dot blogs dot com) cover the Pro and Fan Artist categories. You or your readers may find them of interest.

Re: Hugo Awards
The Hugo Awards recognize the best science fiction and fantasy of the previous year, in both professional and fan categories. They are a fan award voted on by the members of the World Science Fiction Convention, and have been given since 1953.

If you want to be a part of next year's, you need to join the 2017 worldcon in Helsinki, Finland, as either an attending or supporting member.

Voted
Votes away! As of 11:30 last night.

Thought one novel was great another good, rest OK.

Shorter stuff: nothing really stood out but still several selections as least beat out No Award.

Long form: Mad Max (good year for movies overall).

Short form had odd set of nominees.

Retro Awards fun: Got to vote for the Roads Must Roll - which I read a long long time ago (but in the same galaxy).

Yes I got my ballot in (urp), but is it OK if the first thing your headline evoked for me was Welles' Falstaff?

Of course. That's where the line is from.

Amazing
I've never been hooked on a series as deeply as this one. You have one incredibly creative mind! You're the first author I've ever wanted to meet in person and have a conversation with. I hope I have the honor of doing so one day, my lord. Lol

yeah I don't keep up with these awards either.

Curious George, which story are you voting for or hoping it gets a win?
