It’s that time of year again: The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominations for its 35th Annual Saturn Awards.
As you might expect, The Dark Knight leads the pack with 11 nominations, but horror holds its own fairly well thanks to three rather surprising nods to Let the Right One In in the Best International Film, Best Performance By a Younger Actor (Lina Leandersson), and Best Writing (John Ajvide Lindqvist) categories. The genre films nominated for Best Picture are The Happening, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Quarantine, Splinter, and The Strangers.
We also stand out among the TV show nominees with “Lost”, “Heroes” (sigh), “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, “Supernatural”, “Dexter”, and “True Blood”.
The Academy’s membership is open to the public, and the presentation show will take place on June 25, 2009, at a site to be announced.

Wonder with me how the hell The Happening and The Mummy got on the list in the Dread Central forums!
