The Best Award Acceptance Speech This Year, or EVER? [Video]

Yesterday we reported on the announcement of the Hugo Awards–the sci-fi Oscars, if you’ll forgive the sort of inaccurate comparison–and you may recall that the The Drink Tank‘s editor Chris J. Garcia won a Hugo for Best Fanzine. His acceptance speech is exactly what you’d expect from someone who won an award unexpectedly–surprise, gratitude, swearing. It’s perfect.

(Skip to 1:30 or so to get to the announcement.)

I’m not gonna lie–if I ever won a Hugo I’d do just about the same thing. If you’re not already a reader, do check out The Drink Tank. Clearly it’s staffed by people who love what they do.

  1. That was so SWEET! AW! It must have been mind blowing, to have all his hard work and dedication acknowledged like that. I don't even know the man and I'm happy for him!

  2. That was so awesome. Sci-Fi fans (and their close relatives, the gaming fans) are some of the most devoted and hard working individuals supporting their favorite industries.
