Who's received the most nominations in any single year?

Robert Silverberg ranks highest here, due to numerous older works that appeared on several Locus all-time polls conducted in 1999; Ursula K. Le Guin second place is perhaps more significant, all but one of her total for works published in 1994. Click on the name to see nominations from the previous year — but note again that nominated works from year Y may not equal the number of nominations in year Y+1.
