    The first awards love for Hannibal. Mads ftw.

    What’s the difference between Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series and Best Television Presentation of a Limited Run Series? There’s basic and pay cable shows in both.

    10 episodes or less was the explanation last year for TV Presentation…

    The official website says that “Breaking Bad, Falling Skies and Game of Thrones lead on TV in an epic year for science fiction, fantasy and horror”, but I see that PaulHan has made an edit for this thread.  That page also notes that four other series had higher nomination tallies than Continuum.

    These nominations are all over the place, so it is hard to support or oppose them.

    At least Hannibal is now award-nominated.

    Woah, no Orphan Black either!  Huge snubs!  This would have been a great place to honour supporting actor Jordan Gavaris as well.

    Interesting nominations. Thank you for posting them.

    Jennifer Carpenter is now in lead while Anna Gunn was lead, supporting and is now back in lead.

    The “Orphan Black” snubs are truly shocking. That show is practically made for the Saturn Awards.

    They seem to like “Game of Thrones” but unless I’m mistaken, they’ve never nominated Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke which is quite surprising. I wonder why they are so resistant when these performers have gained recognition elsewhere.

    That’s what I expected as soon as I saw the thread title. I guess it’s kinda like what Christian Siriano said on Project Runway: ““I’m kind of a big deal, and I’m kind of a celebrity… in my own head“.

    My thread, and my preference.  This more than makes up for the Canadian Screen Awards fiasco, with Continuum getting only 2 notices while Orphan Black got 14.  The Saturns obviously think Maslany’s role is a gimmick as well.  Good nominees all around, and if this doesn’t convince you Continuum is worth your time, you’re just too closed-minded as I’ve been accused of over the years. Vindication for the cast and crew of the best show you’re not watching.

    Paul come back to me when Continuum gets nominations from a MAJOR award show.

    And, no, the Saturn Awards are not a major awards show.

    So what you’re saying is even though the Canadians gave Orphan Black 7x more noms than Continuum, it’s still an undeniable fact that if the Emmys weren’t…racist? country-ist?…against Canadians, Continuum would be racking up the Emmy noms? Interesting…mindset.

    The CSA’s clearly favored shows that were filmed in the eastern part of Canada, Toronto and Ottawa, specifically. That’s not up for debate.  When British Columbia’s 2 most popular series, Continuum and CBC’s Arctic Air get a combined 30 nominations between them at last year’s Leo Awards (16 & 14 respectively), yet only receive 2 at the CSA’s, what further proof do you need?  That’s a 15-1 ratio, if you want dueling ratios.

    And to get 3 nominations, despite near-zero acknowledgement from U.S. tv critics of its very existence (nothing on Metacritic or RT), proves the Saturns are the real deal. They WERE paying attention. They saw Nichols put on an acting clinic with her searing performance in Second Opinion, IMO the single best lead actress one-episode showcase on American TV this season. And then topped it with the 2nd season finale, Second Time.  Getting there was the hard part.  Anything else after this is gravy. 

    Upon fuirther review, about the only misstep they had was Dexter; most of this forum and elsewhere said season 8 was the worst the show’s ever had. Its goodwill throughout the years carried them to those 2 noms.
