If that's Grace Kościelna it's pronounced exactly as it's spelled :)

Oodles
In Narrativia's pipeline (some of these are re-posts of older news);
Good Omens TV series written by Neil Gaiman
Wee Free Men film written by Rhianna Pratchett
Mort film written by Terry Rossio
Unnamed secret film also written by Terry Rossio (IN HIS SPARE TIME!) - but when Rob went out for a chinese meal with Terry R, he had more rice than him, he found the meal educational, but there was a row of dents in the table
A new secret unnamed exec producer who worked on a TV franchise that Rob used a cunning secret name for, that no one understood - 'Proctor Poo'
The watch progresseth, Rod Brown expects it to start filming next year, and we finally got told the reason the the delay - they are now starting pre-Guards Guards!, rather than all new episodes

Also;
The Discworld Diary 2017 or 2018 will be about Terry
The biography is slowly taking shape
Discworld Compendium will be reissued with all of the stuff that has been excluded in the past due to size
Discworld Encyclopaedias - starting with Death - will be after that
A linkup betwixt Discworld.com and the Josh Kirby estate to reissue as many of Josh's works as possible

I'll post any more I remember

It was a well deserved victory

Actually, for the first time in my memory, I only heard agreement with all the judges choices in every category, and most people agreed with the grand master winner
