The Ocean At The End of the Lane won a Hugo?  Really?

That book should have had a white cover with plain black letters reading "NEIL GAIMAN NOVEL." 

It wasn't bad or anything, it was just so typical for him it was almost self-parody.

No, it did not. The list posted by Kevi_Ohio is the list of the most popular books on Goodreads, not the Hugos.

Derp, nevermind then.

Still; that's a book that succeeded entirely on the inertia of the author's (richly deserved) popularity.
