Lost owns sci-fi awards

Contrary to popular belief, awards season is NOT over. Sure, the bald-headed gold statuettes have been handed out, those globes were distributed a ways back, and the Puppy Bowl already named its M.V.P., but it's time for the geeks to dish out some hardware via the annual Saturn Awards.

Recognizing the best in science-fiction, horror, and fantasy, the Saturn Awards announced its list of nominees today, and there's a fairly good chance that ABC's Lost will take home a trophy this year. Lost was honored with 11 nominations this year, almost doubling the second-highest total in the television category.

Best network television series nominations went to Lost, Heroes, Fringe, Life on Mars, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Supernatural. On the cable side of things, Battlestar Galactica, The Closer, Dexter, Leverage, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and True Blood will battle it out.

Lost also dominated the acting categories with Matthew Fox (Jack), Evangeline Lilly (Kate), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond, brotha), Michael Emerson (Ben), Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet), Alan Dale (Widmore), Kevin Durand (Keamy), and Sonya Walger (Penny) all getting nominations in actor, supporting actor, and guest actor categories. No love for Terry O'Quinn?

Heroes also fared well with a total of six nominations, followed by Battlestar Galactica and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles with four each.

On the film side of things, The Dark Knight grabbed 11 nominations, with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Iron Man right behind with nine and eight, respectively.

For a full list of nominees, head over to the Saturn Awards Web site.

Supernatural deserves to win more than "Lost" or any of the others up there considering how well they've done so far this season. Plus shows like "Lost" & "Heroes" tend to garner all the attention anyway (though unwarranted in the case of Heroes").

Lost is the best. Battlestar galactica is cool too, but I more of a Lost fan.

I agree - Battlestar is definatly the best. Best show on TV in my opinion - not just of sci-fi. Lost would be a relatively close second though.

If they nominate Heroes they have neither eyes nor ears and must watch these shows by licking their television sets.

Heroes has 7 nominations and you put a headline that says Lost owns these awards??? Oh, common, everyone is tired of TV.com's article writers and their exaggeration when it comes to Lost.

Even though Life on Mars is canceled, I'm glad that it's been nominated. Also for Supernatural and Dexter. ;)

I'm really happy about Lost and glad about supernatural and dexter, but why da hell heroes is still on. I'd give them award "the dumbest popular TV series in 21st century". lol.

LOST all the way and who agrees with me that this year the outstanding star is Josh 'sawyer' Holloway.

Terminator hands down. Time for Summer Glau to win her third Saturn award. Her character is easily the most intriguing in tv-land. The Lost flashes are also brilliant.

I hope Battlestar Galactica wins every award its nominated for, its definitely the best show there, followed by Lost. As much as i like Supernatural, it doesn't deserve any awards.
Reply

Well, Terry O'Quinn has his equally bald Emmy so he doesn't need a Saturn.



We really need to get a "Saturn Awards" guide on Tv.com, what do you say?

I'm noty surprised at Lost getting so many nominations, it is a fantastic show and this season has been no exception. I like most of the other nominbated shows too but Lost has the edge.

Are we going to be able to actually watch this awards show? TV maybe? Or will be a download on torrents?

This is kind of awards show that I'd actually sit down and watch until the very end.

Supernatural rules :)

An award show I would actually enjoy watching. Does anyone know when it will air in America and if we'll ever get a chance to see it here in Australia?
