The Martian has scienced the shit out of its situation once again, beating out high-octane thrillers like Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mad Max: Fury Road and Ex Machina to win the Hugo Award for best long-form dramatic presentation.

“AKA Smile,” the first season finale of Netflix’s Marvel adaptation Jessica Jones, won the short-form dramatic presentation award.

N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth entry The Fifth Season was named best novel. Nigerian-American author Nnedi Okorafor’s novella, Binti, received top honors in its category. Best novelette was Hao Jingfang’s Folding Beijing.

Author Neil Gaiman and artist J.H. Williams III were honored for best graphic story for The Sandman: Overture. The famously outspoken writer was one of many winners not present to accept his award, but still reportedly denounced the Sad/Rabid Puppy movement that has attempted to destabilize the Hugos in recent years in reaction to perceived proliferation and promotion of progressivism in science fiction and fantasy literature.
