Now that the Oscars are finally over, the Saturn Awards have come along and graced with nominations that are actually fun/infuriating-in-their-own-way. There’s some cross-over between Oscars and Saturn Awards this year with Hugo racking up 10 nominations. But since the Academy doesn’t want to recognize genre movies, they ignored Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The Saturns are giving Mr. Potter his due, and the final chapter of the saga also nabbed 10 nominations. Also doing well on the film side were Super 8 (8 nominations), Captain America: The First Avenger (7 nominations), The Adventures of Tintin and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (6 nominations each). As for TV, Breaking Bad led with six nominations. I can live with all of these (although eight nominations for Super 8 is pushing it).
Wait. I just saw that there were no nominations for Drive. Never mind. The Saturn Awards are sham. Hit the jump for the full list of nominees. Winners will be announced on June 20th (a long ways off, but meant to hit in the heart of the summer movie season).
