Table T8: Tally: All Nominees, All Awards and Polls
 


Tallies of nominees for "Major Awards" include only the ten awards listed on the homepage under that heading. "All Awards" include all awards, prizes, and honors in the Index excluding only the Locus and five other reader polls. Tallies of "All Awards and Polls" include all nominees in the entire Index. The selections of "Nominees by Group" correspond to the Summary Results tables.

On these page both 'wins' and 'nominations' include career prizes , but fiction subtotals do not.

'Nominations' includes poll rankings below first place.

For tallies of nominees of particular awards, click on the award name from the Homepage, then click on 'Tallies'.

This table excludes nothing and includes everything -- all nominations for all awards and polls for all types of nominees.
  • Artist Michael Whelan has won more awards of all types than anyone else. Ursula K. Le Guin leads for works of fiction, having overtaken long-time leader Harlan Ellison.
  • Robert Silverberg has the most 'nominations'--though keep in mind these figures include all rankings on the Locus and other reader polls.
  • Lisa Goldstein and John Barnes are currently tied for the sad distinction of being nominated most without ever having won.
