2007 Nebula Award Nominees

Location: New York City, New York

Comments: In 2007 the Nebula Awards went to New York and did absolutely nothing much that was interesting. This isn't to say that the collection of winners were undeserving or uninteresting, but nothing much that was surprising happened, and no one seems to have had a particularly outstanding year. The only person to get more than one nominee was Scott Westerfeld, who was nominated twice for the Andre Norton Award, but no one else got more than a single nomination. I suppose one might be somewhat surprised that the juggernaut that is Doctor Who only got one nomination in the Best Script category, but after the sparse nominations in 2006, it was just surprising to see a fleshed out field this year.
