    They come out later today, and this will likely be the only other time on the movie awards calendar we’ll have a showdown between the #3, #7 and #13 films on the all-time domestic boxoffice ranking (Avengers, TDKR and Hunger Games) FYI: Skyfall #40, Life of Pi 435th, domestically.  Nick’s Kids Choice Awards came close but TDKR didn’t make the final cut.  Saturns always produce interesting choices and this time should be no exception.  Eligibility period is calendar year 2012.

    Les Mis was an action/adventure? 

    And what is the point of this award when they virtually nominated everything possible for their various categories? The fact that their only major snubs for Best Film are for films like John Carter, Battleship, Dark Shadows is evidence enough.

    And Chronicle was the single most vomit-inducing film of the year for me, not because it was bad (it was bad actually come to think of it), but because of the shaky camera.

    Well, I’m very happy to see that they acurately slotted the sci-fi’s from the fantasies. I think this is the first time actually. Lol. I find these far more interesting than what AMPAS has given us this year.

    Maybe we can accept “Les Miserables” but the real question is what’s “Anna Karenina” doing here? It’s not science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller, action or adventure.

    Interesting to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anne Hathaway with two nominations. It’s rare to see actors gain recognition for multiple film performances in the same year at the Saturn Awards.

    I’m glad someone finally recognized the quality of the production design in “Dark Shadows” and the costume design in “Django Unchained”. They didn’t make it to the Oscars, but they should have been nominated by their respective guilds at the very least.

    Chloe Grace Moretz was pretty terrible in “Dark Shadows”.

    Mark Ruffalo should have been nominated for “The Avengers”.

    I can’t believe they nominated “The Avengers” for editing!

    Nice to see Joss Whedon get his due for The Avengers.  Well-deserved double of directing and screenwriting.  And while Cloud Atlas wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it’s right up the Saturns’ alley.  I would have liked more representation from Hunger Games, especially Gary Ross in place of Friedkin, and Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson and Donald Sutherland.

    ” And while Cloud Atlas wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it’s right up the Saturns’ alley  “
    It is; and it’s certainly MY cup of tea. The absence of that cast, Jim Broadbent, Doona Bae, Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, is unfortunate imo, esp since I still believe Broadbent, is better than anyone in the current Osar lineup.
    Saturns are generally “anti” establishment, which sci-fis so often are (Brave New World anyone?) which is why the appearance of ZD30 here motivates me to write to them directly and ask them why. Are they hoping it wins so we can all watch them accepting on behalf of the CIA and their many minions?  HA.
