This was our 2nd year covering our favorite genre event, the Saturn Awards AKA the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films and this year’s event was filled with surprises like Mel Brooks and hopefully anticipated winners such as the TV show Fringe (who won) along with cast members John Noble and Anna Torv for best actors.

About the Saturn Awards: The Academy was founded in 1972 by noted film historian Dr. Donald A. Reed to honor and recognize genre entertainment.  Over the years, the Academy has expanded their reach to include other film genres.  The organization also recognizes excellence in television and home entertainment.
