So. Lot of stuff going down in SFF right now. I’m not considered a “real” SFF writer because I wrote *gasp* KISSING BOOKS (no lie, I’ve been informed of this) so I can’t comment much.

But I will say it’s the absolute least you can do to study people’s names before you’re going to record awards show, and check in afterward to make sure you said everyone’s correctly.

And editing out blather, not to mention in editing in correct pronunciations, is the absolute least a pre-recorded awards show could do.

All of this kind of makes me glad I’m not “relevant.” But my heart aches for people who had their wonderful, beautiful moment of affirmation shat on so badly. I’m so sorry.
