Nominations have been announced for the 40th Annual Saturn Awards. The nominees and winners are selected by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, which recognizes achievements in genre films, television and home video. Another way to view them would be an academy that recognizes genre blockbusters and it’s the only way Jack the Giant Slayer could get nominated for anything ever. But this year’s big nominees were Gravity and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which each racked up eight nominations. To be fair, the Saturn Awards also have the room to take chances such as nominating Scarlett Johansson for Best Supporting Actress for Her…but then they turn right back around and nominate The Lone Ranger for Best Action/Adventure Movie. On the TV side, Breaking Bad, Falling Skies, and Game of Thrones each picked up five nominations.
Hit the jump for the full list of nominees. Winners will be announced in June.
