2017 Saturn Award Nominations: 'Rogue One' Leads The Way With 11 Nods

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.

Check out the full list of 2017 Saturn Awards nominees below.

On the television side, The Walking Dead was the most nominated show, coming away with a total of seven nominations (even though the show has really started to piss off its most loyal fans recently). Westworld wasn't far behind with six nominations, followed by American Horror Story: Roanoke with five nods. Stranger Things ended up with some love as well, landing three nominations, including a Best New Media TV Series nomination.

We'll be waiting awhile before we find out the winners though, since they won't be announced until June 28, 2017.
