Last night the National Book Awards (the Oscars for books) were presented, and Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona, only the fourth graphic novel to get an NBA nomination, lost out to Neal Shusterman’s Challenger Deep.

Despite the loss, Stevenson’s twitter feed shows her having a great time with her family and editor and, it must be said, she rocked a pretty sharp red carpet look. If only all awards shows could be as spiffy.
