The 46th Annual Saturn Awards nominations are upon us, honoring film and television series that were released/aired between July 15, 2019 and November 15, 2020. The Saturn Awards organization is the official awards group of The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films, a non-profit organization founded in 1972.
The hit Amazon Prime Video series The Boys received two nominations. The Boys, which is based on the wicked comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is set in a world where superheroes exist. That’s all fine and dandy, besides the fact that most of them are dicks. Some of the most vile can be found amongst The Seven, a group of celebrity Supes working under the villainous corporation Vought. The Boys, meanwhile, are a group of vigilantes that risk their lives to try to take them down once and for all.
The Boys was nominated for Best Superhero Adaptation Television Series, up against contenders including Batwoman, The Flash, Stargirl, Supergirl, The Umbrella Academy, and Watchmen.
Additionally, arguably the most pure Supe of them all — our very own Annie January aka Starlight was recognized as well! Erin Moriarty was nominated for Best Performance by a Younger Actor on a Television Series.
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, and more. Supernatural fan favorite Jensen Ackles is set to join the cast for season 3, which is currently in production in Canada. Make sure to check out our episodic recaps and review of season 2, along with our features on Billy Butcher’s shirt collection and his most diabolical one-liners.
Stay tuned, as a date has not yet been set for the 2021 Saturn Awards ceremony, which will be held later this year.
