Who's won the most consecutive major awards in any category?

This list includes only 'major' awards, but all categories; the top ranks are populated by winners in ongoing-achievement categories, rather than categories awarding specific works. Dave Langford still holds the record here, though his streak was broken by John Scalzi in 2008.
