Saturn Awards Nominations: 'Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker', 'Tenet', 'Walking Dead', 'Outlander' Lead List




 

The 46th annual Saturn Awards unveiled nominations Thursday by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, the nonprofit that honors the year's best in genre films, TV, home entertainment and theater.

The wide-ranging list of nominees were led by Disney/Lucasfilm's Star Wars Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker, which scored the most noms overall with 12 including for Best Science Fiction Release. It was one of several films from last year's movie awards season that were eligible this year after the group extended its eligibility period to run July 15, 2019-November 15, 2020 and allowed streaming and VOD entrants in the film categories.

  • 'Walking Dead' $300M Profits Trial Likely Won't F*cking Include Frank Darabont's Expletive-Laced Emails

  • 'Tenet' Finally Arriving In New York City This Friday

  • 'The Walking Dead': Michael James Shaw To Play Mercer In Upcoming Season 11

Other top nom-getters included Warner Bros' Christopher Nolan move Tenet with nine and Doctor Sleep with eight across genres that span comics, sci-fi, horror, fantasy, thrillers and action-adventure. Other noms went to the likes of this year's Mulan, Birds of Prey and The Old Guard alongside last year's biggies Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Joker, Parasite and 1917.

Warner Bros led all studios with 34 noms, followed by Disney with 27. Netflix had 25 in both film and TV, with the CW and its superhero fare leads all small-screeners with 14 noms. Kino Lorber led all home entertainment categories with eight nominations.

On the TV side, AMC's Better Call Saul, Starz's Outlander and AMC's The Walking Dead topped the list with five noms apiece.

Organizers are planning an awards ceremony for later this year.
