Saturn Awards: An event aimed at our geeky hearts
05:00 AM, Feb 20, 2013
This morning nominations for the 39th Annual Saturn Awards were announced. If you’re like me and saw many fantasy, sci-fi and superhero films in theaters last year, this is right up your alley.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey received the most nods this year, followed by Life of Pi and Skyfall. The Avengers, The Cabin in the Woods and The Dark Knight Rises also are up for honors, along with performances by Matthew McConaughey (Killer Joe), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Looper and The Dark Knight Rises) and Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman), among others.
The Saturn Awards also honor television series, so the crop of nominees includes genre fare like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story: Asylum, Fringe and Doctor Who.
