“The Walking Dead” Walks Away with 6 Saturn Award Nominations

Why did we pick this as the lead into the post? Well, for one, we’re big sci-fi geeks here at Mingle Media TV and two we loved AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series! Congratulations to Frank Darabont for receiving 6 nominations! We got to speak with Michael Rooker, who was one of the characters (living) that you loved to hate this week at the Italia Film Festival at Grauman’s Theatre. Here’s a little about what he had to say:

So if you’re not familiar with The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films – well, you’re in for a treat as this is their 37th Annual Saturn Awards nomination announcement and leading the charge is Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending sci-fi thriller “Inception” with 9 nominations. It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow at the Oscar’s as Inception is also nominated for Best Picture.

More nominee’s are: Overture/Relativity Media’s “Let Me In” and Disney’s “Tron: Legacy” downloaded 7 nominations apiece, Clint Eastwood’s thought-provoking “Hereafter” received 6, while “Alice in Wonderland,” “Black Swan,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” “Never Let Me Go” and “Shutter Island” earned 5 nominations each .

Warner Bros. Pictures leads the pack with 23 nominations from 6 films, including “Clash of the Titans,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” “Hereafter,” “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole,” “Splice,” and “Inception.”


Also with strong showings were Paramount (lead by “Shutter Island,” and “Iron Man 2″) and Walt Disney Studios (lead by “Tron: Legacy,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Toy Story 3″) with 16 and 14 nominations, respectively.
Fox Searchlight and Universal earned 10 nominations apiece, followed by Overture/Relativity Media (7),  20th Century Fox (6), Summit Entertainment (5), DreamWorks Animation and Marvel Films (each with 4), while Lionsgate, Magnolia Pictures and Sony Pictures scored 3 nominations each.
Of Special note, is Kino Lorber’s release of Fritz Lang’s ground-breaking 84-year-old classic, The Complete Metropolis” which was nominated for Best International Film and Best Music.
TV Categories
In the television categories, Frank Darabont’s zombie-drama “The Walking Dead” (AMC) came to life with 6 nominations.   “Breaking Bad” (AMC), “Lost” (ABC) and “Fringe” (Fox) tied with 5 nominations.  “Leverage” (TNT), “True Blood” (HBO) earned 4 apiece, followed by “Dexter” (Showtime) and “V” (ABC) with 3 and  “The Closer” (TNT), “Smallville” (CW), and Spartacus: Blood and Sand” (Starz) with 2.
