The Marian Kelly Hall of Fame
Awards in Starsky & Hutch
Starting in 1979, ZebraCon held the Huggy Awards. The online Torino awards began in 2000. ZebraCon ended in 2007 and the Torinos in 2008. The only award our fandom had after that was the Paula Wilshe Award.
So in 2016, the intrepid (read: crazy) people who brought you the PW decided to add a new award system: the Marian Kelly Hall of Fame. Marian was a Founding Mother in SH fandom, with a long history of creativity that included award winning zine stories, art, and letterzine contributions. She also ran one of the earliest Writer’s Workshops at Zebracon in 1980. Check out her fanlore page.
Categories in the Marian awards are:
1) Best Writer: for a body of work of stories, poetry, non-fiction, blogs, opinion, or anything written involving Starsky & Hutch. Hall of Fame writers are not eligible for the Paula Wilshe.
Best Writer Marian Winners
2) Best Writing: for a single work, such as a story, poem, non-fiction essay, individual blog entry, opinion piece, or anything written involving Starsky & Hutch. In 2019, the Best Writing Award was split into five categories by word count.
