Of course I didn't win.
Big, handsome, ever-smiling, famous Marcus Samuelsson won the James Beard award for best food book of the year. He's on television all the time, he's got a couple of booming, very good restaurants in New York and all the food people in New York know who he is. He has an amazing life story--born in Ethiopia, raised in Sweden, bootstraps-to-glory in Manhattan. Nice guy too. Naturally I hate him.
