Saturn 2015 Award Nominations are in

Now this is a nomination list that I can fully support. The Saturn awards actually respects and honors Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror movies and most of those movies are released in 3D and are movies that I tend to enjoy so this is right up my alley.  

The 41st Annual Saturn Awards Nominations 2015 

 The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announces the nominations for this year's 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier leads the nominations this year with a total of 11 with the epic space adventure, Interstellar, receiving 10 nominations. Guardians of the Galaxyfollows closely behind with 9 nominations.  In television, The Walking Dead scared up an impressive 7 nominations with the Bryan Fuller NBC series, Hannibal, achieving 6 nominations.

The Saturn Awards have strived to honor film and television in categories which best refllects their genres.  The Academy recognizes additional areas of genre entertainment which includes Best Action/Adventure Film, Best Thriller Film, Best Independent Film Release and Best International Film Release. In television, we have such diverse categories as Best Youth Oriented Television Series, Best Superhero Adaptation Television Series, and Best Limited Run Television Series.

In home entertainment, the nominations are dominated by Warner Home Entertainment with 8 nominations which includes the William Friedkin film, Sorcerer, and Batman: The Complete Television Series.  The Clive Barker film, Nightbreed: The Director's Cut, has also been nominated (Best  DVD/BD Special Edition Release).

The Academy is beginning a new program this year called Affiliate Membership, which allows everyone to be involved in the voting this year.  When you become an Affiliate member, you will have the opportunity to vote in selected categories in both Film and Television.  For more information, you can click on the links posted on this page.

This has been a strong year for genre entertainment.  The Saturn Awards are dedicated to honoring the best in film, television, and home entertainment.  This year's winners will be announced at the 41st Annual Saturn Awards which takes place on June 25, 2015.
