The Saturn Awards Noms - Deserved Genre Honor

by
February 22, 2007

We've neglected to mention the Saturn Awards, and I know it's a shame that we haven't. So now I am paying my dues and mentioning them here, now, for all to enjoy just days before the Oscars. Honestly I'd never heard of them before, but the Saturn Awards are The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films annual awards with the nominees always announced near the Oscars to pay respect to the few that didn't get the mention they deserved by the Academy. This year's noms are dominated by Superman Returns with 10 and X-Men: The Last Stand and Pan's Labyrinth with 6 each. The winners will be announced at a presentation on May 10th. Read on for all of the noms.

We'll be discussing our thoughts on this in the upcoming 28th podcast that will be arriving after the Oscars on next week, so listen in on that for our personal considerations. For the official website of nominations, click here.
