“The other common complaint one hears is: ‘Why wasn’t my book nominated when some book I never heard of was?!’ Well, you may not have heard of some of the books nominated, but the judges read them. So they’re in a better position to decide if they deserved it or not. Awards are great ways of bringing people’s attention to books that may have flown under the radar. I would have never read or even seen many of the books on the list had I not been a judge this year. I am glad to have had the opportunity because there are a lot more truly good books out there than I ever imagined and the diversity if content is very strong. If you think a book should have been nominated that wasn’t all I can say is, there are an insane amount of books and many of them are really good. So you may have come really close, but in the end there are only room for five or six nominations.”
–Writer and Eisner judge James Hudnall, responding to one of the complaints about this year’s Eisner nominations. His lengthy post on the process is worth a read, and he promises there’s more to come.
