Marvel’s The Avengers was named Best Science Fiction Film and also received Saturn Awards for Best Supporting Actor (Clark Gregg), Best Direction (Joss Whedon) and Best Special Effects (Janek Sirrs, Jeff White, Guy Williams, Dan Sudick).

Life of Pi was named Best Fantasy Film, The Cabin in the Woods was honored as Best Horror/Thriller Film, and Skyfall received the Saturn Award for Best Action/Adventure Film.

In TV categories, Breaking Bad received three Saturn Awards – Best Presentation on Television, Best Actor (Bryan Cranston, in a tie with Kevin Bacon for The Following) and Best Supporting Actor on Television (Jonathan Banks).

“From zombies and super-heroes to some of the best science-fiction stories ever created and the most awesome images of fantasy ever seen, this was a truly phenomenal year for genre entertainment, which is now the very heart of the entire entertainment industry,” said Academy President Robert Holguin. “The Academy of Science Fiction, Horror & Fantasy Films is truly delighted to be able to honor such fine achievements.”

TDKR gets its a$$ kicked again by The Avengers!  Boo-ya!

dojen1 6/27/2013 9:05:53 AM

TDKR = overlong, boring in MANY places and ultimately pointless.

What Nolan started with a tremendous first chapter ended in a depressing mess. Bring on the next Batman reboot.

 I love Breaking Bad, but it's not a genre show.

mellowdoux 6/27/2013 10:15:16 AM

 Best Animated Movie should have gone to "Paranorman" over "Frankenweenie".

fatpantz 6/27/2013 11:02:46 AM

I completely agree mellowdoux, Paranorman blew it away in my opinion

mellowdoux 6/27/2013 11:27:57 AM

 Cheers Fatpantz.

"Paranorman" looked great, had a fun story, plus a pretty good message for kids about it being "Okay to be yourself and be different".

Anne Hathaway?  Really?  She did nothing in TDKR, and what she did do, she sucked at.  She's had other decent roles before, but I don't think she made TDKR any better off for her presence in it.

Scarlett Johansson is not world-shattering thespian, either, but she made The Avengers better by being in it.  Or what about Lena Headey in "Dredd"?  Judi Dench in "Skyfall"?  Any of those ladies are better actresses than Anne Hathaway, and made the films they were in better by their presence.

Aside from that little complaint-rant, I'm pretty happy with the Saturns this year (aka. the REAL Academy Awards.  LOL).

 And what kind of message are YOU sending the kid's, mellowdoux, by spending so much time down at the Pub drinking, instead of taking time with them????

Silly Rabbit.....

I'd give best writing to Cabin In the Woods over Django.  Django was a decent flick, but the plot got in the way of the story in the end.  QT overly complicated the whole "we wanna buy your mandingo slave" ruse when all they really should've done was have Schultz say "Hey Candie, I heard you have a slave who speaks German.  I, as you can surely tell by my accent, am also German.  Boy, it'd be great if I could buy her from you!"  BOOM!  DONE!  You can still have the double-cross and the ending we got without all the useless subterfuge.

And what, no awards for Game of Thrones?
