List of Saturn Award Winners: Avatar Rules!

The 36th Saturn Awards (which honor movies and TV shows in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genre primarily) were handed over last night.

It was Avatar who basically dominated the awards with ten wins, including Best Picture, Best Writer and Best Director (James Cameron), Best Actor (Sam Worthington), Best Actress (Zoe Saldana), Best supporting Actor (Stephen Lang) and Best Supporting Actress (Sigourney Weaver) - take that Oscars!

Star Trek was recompensed for Best-Makeup and writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman received the George Pal Memorial Ward.

On the TV side of Sci-Fi, Lost and Fringe were winners with a win for Best Television series for Lost and best actor for Josh Holloway. Fringe's Anna Torv picked up the award for Best Actress, and Leonard Nimoy received the award for Best Guest Actor for his role on Fringe!

Of the British BBC shows only Torchwood: Children of Earth received an award for Best Presentation on Television (whatever that means).

However, I still can't understand why Dexter and Breaking Bad were even included in the competition in the first place since neither shows are Sci-Fi. Oh well - seems the definition of Sci-Fi and Fantasy is a little loose with the Saturn Awards! Oh well.
