Generally, the eligibility period for TV is the calendar year (1/1 to 12/31). Key word, “generally”. Since Continuum did not debut in the United States until 1/14/13, an exception was made to nominate it in Best TV Presentation. Its strong run in Canada last summer, plus extraordinary demand for fans south of the 49th parallel to see it... before its official SyFy unveiling, along with its obvious quality, were likely factors in granting this waiver.

Good to see the love for Breaking Bad and Dexter, and getting the correct nominees for each show (e.g. Banks and not Paul for BB). Although no love for Game of Thrones actors is disappointing (this is one of the few groups that hasn't nominated Peter Dinklage, yet they nominated his costars last year)

My picks

Network TV Series: No preference
Cable TV Series: Dexter
Television Presentation: Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones
Fantasy Series: No preference
Actor: Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (runner-up: Michael C. Hall, Dexter)
Actress: No preference
Supporting Actor: Jonathan Banks, Breaking Bad
Supporting Actress: Jennifer Carpenter, Dexter (runner-up: Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad)
Guest Appearance: Yvonne Strahovski, Dexter (runner-up: Ray Stevenson, Dexter) 
2014 Oscar FYC: Gone Girl (Picture, Director-David Fincher, Actor-Ben Affleck, Actress-Rosamund Pike, Supporting Actress-Carrie Coon and Kim Dickens)

Why did they nominate Jessica Lange in Supporting Actress instead of Lead Actress. Her and Sarah Paulson are in the wrong categories.

I can't believe they nominated Elementary for series, but snubbed the AMAZING performance by Johnny Lee Miller.

Overall, some pretty good nominations.

The Saturn Awards are so messed up. They had Jessica Lange in lead for the first season and they nominate her in supporting for the second season.

Jonny Lee Miller really deserved a nomination for "Elementary". I'm really disappointed he was left out in a category with seven nominees.

"The Following" has only aired a few episodes. How can it be eligible and even if it is, why didn't they put it in "Television Presentation" with the other shows that aired 10 episodes or less?

They've really liked "Leverage" over the years.

According to their website, that "Fantasy Series" category is actually called "Youth-Oriented Series".

Nice to see an underdog show like Leverage get parting gifts for yeoman service on TNT's watch.  One of the more underrated, underrespected shows out there.  Edit:  My bad; Fantasy Series is in fact Youth-Oriented Series.  Apologies for the misinterpretation on my end.

It has no chance of winning, of course (Breaking Bad will), but for the Saturns to give a Best TV Presentation nomination to Continuum should end all doubt as to the legitimacy of that show in future Emmy discussion.  It has submission tapes in Drama Series, Actress (Rachel Nichols), Supporting Actor (Tony Amendola, Erik Knudsen), Supporting Actress (Lexa Doig), direction and writing (the pilot), and who knows what else.  It's time for the snubbing of this show's GoldDerby thread to end and a legitimate discussion begin about what's good and bad, about the actors, writing and content.  Episodes can be re-watched via the SyFy website. 

How many more nominations from award-giving orgs does Continuum have to get to spark a discussion about it on here?

We can all agree that John Noble is the deserving winner of supporting actor, right?

The Saturn Awards are always a joke with their very-flexible eligibility.  EDIT: Nevermind, got these confused with the Satellite Awards.

That twenty-five live-action dramas can say that they were nominated for best series is also ridiculous.

Television Presentation is for shows that aired 10 episodes or less, I believe.

When the nominations were announced last year, "The Killing" was nominated in the Television Presentation category. They later realized their mistake and ultimately placed it in the appropriate category.
