Hear Him, Hear Him

Joshua Bilmes is wise about the Hugo ceremony:
If you don't think the Hugo Awards should go on for three hours, and they most certainly should not, you have to do away with the damned clips for the dramatic presentation. If you're going to leave in the clips, then I want people to read one-minute excerpts from the nominated pieces of fiction. Believe it or not, the Hugos are supposed to be a literary award, so none of these damned clips for the dramatic presentations.
 (I wasn't even there, so I have no particular axe to grind.)
