2005 Origins Award winners posted

Despite the confusion of still having the defunct originsawards.com website up and running, the 2005 Origins Award winners were announced early yesterday. They’ve finally made it to the Academy page (and are copied below), though are still MIA on the GAMA site proper. Perhaps if there were still some sort of ceremony or presentation, more people would’ve noticed. In any case, many of the winners announced were in line with critical praise given elsewhere, so the process isn’t as screwed up as it could be.
