    Predictions for next week’s announcement, other than it will be infinitely more appealing than the Indie Spirits rebroadcast, er, the Oscars?

    Thanks for letting us know. I’ve been wondering when they will come out. I’m excited who’ll be eligible for nominations. Amy Adams should have it in the bag for “Arrival”.

    Okay so from what I have heard, those choices were leaked early and that the Saturn Awards will have their real choices on March 2nd.

    I hope this is true because Kubo and the Two Strings not being nominated for anything, including Animated Feature is beyond criminal.

    Also finally they have an animated category for television, and for the most part I really like the choices. Any mention of The Little Prince is automatically great.

    Apparently changes are minor – “Arrival” and “The Jungle Book” getting one nomination more and “Captain America: Civil War” – one less. I’m not crazy about many of those movies but there are great ones in the mix and it’s amazing that those awards remain so singular since their inception in early 1970s.

    EDIT
    For acting awards I think right now it’s Adams – Reynolds – Robbie – Goodman.

    And against whom! Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. Yi. Kes.

    The whole category is a mess. I’d exchange Finding Dory, Sing or Trolls for Sausage Party and Storks to be honest.

    No way Kubo was left out for all that crap. What’s even more eerie? This is the first Laika movie not nominated. Why.

    You shouldn’t take it that seriously. Take Best Actress category alone:

    1976. Blythe Danner, Futureworld over Sissy Spacek, Carrie (no nominations that year, only winner)
    1985. Coral Browne, Dreamchild over Mia Farrow, The Purple Rose of Cairo
    1991. Linda Hamilton, Terminator 2: Judgement Day over both Kathy Bates, Misery and Jodie Foster, The Silence of the Lambs*
    2000. Tea Leoni, The Family Man over Ellen Burstyn, Requiem for a Dream
    2004. Blanchard Ryan, Open Water over Nicole Kidman, Birth; Uma Thurman, Kill Bill Volume 2 and Kate Winslet, Eternal Sunshine…

    Or no nod for Jim Carrey in The Mask.

    *understandable given it’s all about genres but still… maybe that thought Best Actress winners back to back were rewarded enough

    Is anyone on this forum a Saturn Awards voter? Does anyone know when Final ballots are due? I’m going to become a member this year so I can vote on the winners! 😀
