If you’re one of those people who gets frustrated because the Academy Awards don’t nominate the science fiction, fantasy, and horror films you love for Best Picture or any of the other categories, then the Saturn Awards are for you.
The 2017 Saturn Award nominations have just been announced, and not only did Rogue One: A Star Wars Story come out on top with 11 nominations, but all those comic book movies that never had a chance in hell of getting a Best Picture nomination landed a bunch of nods. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and even X-Men: Apocalypse all received nominations.
But this isn’t just a comic book movie celebration, because plenty of other genre films landed nominations too. Star Trek Beyond, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and 10 Cloverfield Lane are just some of the other films that ended up getting nominated for awards, too.
