    Here’s the story on the Saturns’ redux via a press release:

    “The 45th annual Saturn Awards will take place on Friday, September 13, 2019 at the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood. For the first time in its history, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, the organization that founded and owns the Saturn Awards, has made a multi-year partnership deal with veteran television producer Justin W. Hochberg. This new highly sought-after collaboration has immediately resulted in the upcoming, newly produced and reinvigorated Saturn Awards show. The traditionally non-televised Saturn Awards has always been a favorite event among the most groundbreaking creators. This new production will be an exciting evolution of the beloved award show and, for the first time since the one-time TV airing in 1978, it will be available to global fans via a streaming partner to be announced shortly. Hochberg’s additional plans to expand the brand creating a home for fandom year round will include a slate of co-marketing deals and brand partnerships all for the first time in the show’s 45 year history. With new content in development and decades of never before seen exclusive archival awards show footage with fandom’s legendary icons the Saturn brand will provide fans with unprecedented innovative experiences impossible to duplicate.

    “For 44 years, The Saturn Awards show has been the ONLY award show to exclusively recognize Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror feature films and television,” said Robert Holguin, the President of the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. “Today genre fans make up the most powerful portion of today’s global entertainment audience but our rich history started long before it was mainstream and includes everyone from J.J. Abrams to Gale Anne Hurd, George Lucas to Jason Blum, Jordan Peele to Gal Gadot, Ryan Coogler, Zoe Saldana and legends like Rod Serling. We couldn’t be more grateful to Justin and the team he has assembled as they take this to infinity and beyond.”

    “The reinvigoration of The Saturn Awards also includes the creation of an Awards Advisory Board with members of the TV, film, animation and fan community. The board’s role will be to help produce the annual presentation and ensure it rigorously honors fans and fan culture. Board members that have joined the advisory board thus far include writer/producer Roberto Orci, Christina Steinberg, producer of the Oscar winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, filmmaker Dean Devlin (Independence Day), producer Roy Lee, director Robert Rodriquez (Alita: Battle Angel, Cannes winner Sin City) and Oscar winning director Peter Ramsey (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) among others.

    “I’ve been a fan of the Saturns my entire career,” says Orci. “I cannot wait to roll up my sleeves to help celebrate pop culture’s most impactful storytellers. For every geek, cosplayer, nerd and underdog, this one is for us.”

    “I am a life-long fan and the opportunity to reinvent the show for today’s social media age and further develop this unique brand for fandom with innovators like Bob Orci, Dean Devlin, Christina Steinberg, Roy Lee, Peter Ramsey and Robert Rodriguez, whose work has generated billions and thrilled millions, is a chance to work with real life superheroes,” says Hochberg, who has brought all of these new elements together.”

    I like Best Actress line-up. Toni Collette should prevail, especially from people who reward achievements in horrors, fantasy and science fiction films.

    I feel like Tom Holland in Young Performer instead of Best Actor is lousy cheating. Hailee Steinfeld’s not supporting. 😀

    John Carpenter was SNUBBED for Best Music for Halloween. Alan Silvestri is great but he shouldn’t have gotten 2 nominations. He took John’s spot.

    The eligibility period March 2018 – July 2019 is odd. Does it mean that “Midsommar” was eligible this time?
