2010 Saturn Award Winners

2010 Saturn Award WinnersThere weren’t a lot of horror films or TV shows honored during the 36th Annual Saturn Awards, presented last night, June 24th, by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, but those that were certainly are deserving.

As you might expect, Avatar dominated the evening. It not only was named Best Science Fiction Film but also won Best Actor and Actress: Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, Best Supporting Actor and Actress: Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver, Best Special Effects, Best Music, Best Production Design, and Best Writer and Director for James Cameron — who holds the record for most Saturn Awards wins of all time.

So, who in our genre did take home the gold?

Drag Me to Hell – Best Horror Film

District 9 – Best International Film

Monsters vs. Aliens – Best Animated Film

Saoirse Ronan of The Lovely Bones – Best Performance by a Younger Actor

Julie Benz of “Dexter” – Best Supporting Actress on Television

In addition, Watchmen (I know, not horror, but it still has lots of fans here on Dread Central) won in three categories: Best Fantasy Film, Best Costume, and Best DVD Special Edition (for “The Ultimate Cut”). “Lost” received Best Network TV Series, Best TV Actor: Josh Holloway, and Best DVD Television Release while “Fringe” garnered two awards for Best TV Actress: Anna Torv and Best Actor in a Guest-Starring Role: Leonard Nimoy.

For the full rundown check out the official Saturn Awards site. And remember, the Academy’s membership is open to the public

    no… Trick r Treat came out on dvd (not in Theatres) October Last year…In the states

      True. It did finally come out on dvd last October. After what,two blown release dates? Anyway, that was a mess,and a travesty. It would have done (IMO) stellar at the theatre,maybe Paranormal Activity type numbers. Wish Trick R Treat went the same road as Paranormal Activity,I can’t believe they let that movie sit,and then finally just throw it out on dvd. Nonetheless,the “official” release date (regardless of when it hit dvd) is 2008. No matter where you look,IMDb included, it carries a 2008 release year.
