1990 Nebula Awards®

Presented at Roosevelt Hotel, New York, New York on April 27, 1991

There was a last minute hotel change from the Omni because the Omni had rented the room out from under SFWA, which didn’t have a contract for the space. The Roosevelt didn’t receive their payment from SFWA in time and Tom Doherty sent over a check to cover it.  The Business Meeting was moved to Saturday morning from the traditional Sunday morning, but the change was announced at the last minute and it was opposite a mass autographing at Forbidden Planet. SFWA President Ben Bova served as emcee and the main speaker was Hugh Downs. The after-banquet party spilled out into the hall and almost got SFWA thrown out of the hotel, but the hotel agreed to let SFWA move from sleeping rooms to unused function space.  There was nothing scheduled for Sunday except a Tor 10th Anniversary party .  For the first time, there were bids to host the next year’s Nebulas outside of New York and California, with Atlanta beating a New Orleans bid.
