National Book Award finalists

Does anyone know how many book awards there are out there? I mean, I'm not complaining -- I enjoy being exposed to a variety of new and excellent books, but I would be curious if someone kept a running tally of all the global and national book awards there are. In any case, THE National Book Award nominees were announced yesterday.
Oh, and if you've moved on from the Booker, fine, but here's a sweet interview with Kiran Desai.
