This is nice because some right wing authoritarians attempted to play politics with the award by setting up a slate of their friends (and a few unwitting bystanders) and getting their fellow travellers (including some GamerGaters) to stuff the nomination box. This didn’t go over very well with the rest of fandom, and the nominations on that slate (with the notable exception of Guardians of the Galaxy) got stomped very systematically into the ground.

It’s unfortunate that so many deserving writers got left off the ballot, but the backfire worked and saved the village this time around.
