The Saturn Awards
The saturn Award is the official honor presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. The Academy has been voting these awards for three decades. The films may change, but the quality and ideas presented in these works remain of
the highest order.
The Exocist was truly terrifying. Star Wars was mythical. Close Encounters was inspiring. Superman: The Movie was majestic. And this was only the 70's.
We honored them all and very deservingly. Whether it was Mr. Spielberg, or Mr. Cameron, or Mr. Singer, we were there to honor
and recognize their achievements.
The Saturn Awards is an acknowledgement of fine work. Some of it is ground-breaking, some of it is vastly entertaining, but the bottom line should be the recognition is well earned.
From the writers who create the initial ideas, to the studios and producers who finance these ideas, to the director who makes
these ideas a reality, filmmaking is a process which has existed over 100 years.
In the 30 years we've been presenting these awards, we have served a purpose. We are there to record these fine cinematic
achievements. The Saturn Award has meaning. To those who receive a nomination and to those who are presented one up on stage. To those who admire and respect the genres we scrutinize. We dedicate ourselves to continuing those efforts.
The members of the Academy and Saturn Awards vote in the annual awards show. Some members vote in specific areas (direction, acting, writing, special/visual effects, etc) while all members vote for the best film releases of the year.
We currently have several best film categories which cover many genres including: Best Science Fiction Film, Best Comic-to-Motion Picture Release, Best Fantasy Film, Best Horror Film, Best Thriller Film, Best Action/Adventure Film, Best Independent Film Release, Best International Film Release and Best Animated Film.
