Here's the full list on the Anticipation website. And here are the full ballot count statistics should anybody be interested.

A partial list:

Best Novel
* The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (HarperCollins; Bloomsbury UK)

Best Novella
* “The Erdmann Nexus” by Nancy Kress (Asimov’s Oct/Nov 2008)

Best Novelette
* “Shoggoths in Bloom” by Elizabeth Bear (Asimov’s Mar 2008)

Best Short Story
* “Exhalation” by Ted Chiang (Eclipse Two)

Best Related Book

*Your Hate Mail Will be Graded: A Decade of Whatever, 1998–2008 by John Scalzi (Subterranean Press)

Best Graphic Story
* Girl Genius, Volume 8: Agatha Heterodyne and the Chapel of Bones Written by Kaja & Phil Foglio, art by Phil Foglio, colors by Cheyenne Wright (Airship Entertainment)

Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form
* WALL-E Andrew Stanton & Pete Docter, story; Andrew Stanton & Jim Reardon, screenplay; Andrew Stanton, director (Pixar/Walt Disney)

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form
* Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Joss Whedon, & Zack Whedon, & Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen , writers; Joss Whedon, director (Mutant Enemy)

As usual I'm unfamiliar with most of the winners, though I will likely look up the Gaiman and Bear writtings, since both tend to be well worth the reading. Both dramatic presentations are also pretty worthy items.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] almeda, who lists many folks who used it earlier. Alas, I didn't recognize any of the songs she listed, but maybe you folks will have better luck with these.

Pick 5 songs that you figure many/most people will know. Enter lyric excerpts of up to 150 words at Babelfish. Translate from English to German, from German to French, from French to Portuguese, and from Portuguese back to English.
Post the result, and see if people can figure out what song it was.

1 - Penny has the way, a hairdresser Mr. to know to it the Fotographien of each head shows it the pleasure and that people are had, to seem and legends hallo turns it has is a Banker with a Motorcar that laughs the small children to behind it its coasts, gone on I sing it and the Banker does not take mack in the rain who leak, the way penny is never very stranger in my ears and to my eyes under blue skies faubourg is seated there, and however it postpones

The rain that with a powerful demolition, we second fell back in the sun and first there the I hopes to the vocês credit blows up well says to be, amusement. Volume on the race, volume on the race. E and the Seemann-SAM after looked to each one the volume on the race, the volume on the race

3 - Worlds create old and the suns create the cold and the death whose we can never doubt.

5 - OH -, low situation me for in the lawn of forest in a Schatulle argenté with golden flowers on my head in a hamper argenté. leave to play the body of horn and drum of the roosters, while the cannons urram, and employed dezasseis liveried vendas souveniers of burial memory. It would simply want to go, if I go; They give to me there that I know with a Schatulle that are drawn in the tosão and to the fogos of artifice that they spell a simple burial, of the remaining portion in the peace. OH -, to take me, will be to the forest lawn.

Remember to hit reply rather than comments if you want to guess before reading what anybody else has to say. It's amusing how some bits of German are sticky enough to sail right through the rest of the trip, though bits of French and Portugese get in there as well. English? Well, sorta...
