2014 SATURN AWARDS Announced

The best in genre films were given their due last night at the 40th annual Saturn Awards. While not as prestigious as maybe an Oscar or Emmy, a Saturn lets those actors and directors of summer blockbusters have their day in the sun that they may not otherwise get. Unless they are involved with Gravity; that movie enjoyed the best of both worlds.

    • I almost wonder if Gravity should count as SciFi. It’s a thriller that happens to take place in orbit around Earth. One day, that line will become even thinner as we explore space further away.
