The 41st Annual Saturn Awards

The 41st Annual Saturn Awards – presented by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films – is about honoring the best in genre entertainment.  The Saturn Awards will be held on Thursday, June 25, at the Castaway Starlight Ballroom in Burbank, California. 

This year’s award winners have lit up the genre world for many years – and include one young actor who seems to be about to embark on a storied career of his own.

Actor Noah Wyle will be receiving the Artists Showcase Award for his many years of excellent work in television.  Noah starred in the The Librarian films for television for TNT and on the series, Falling Skies, on TNT since 2011.  Currently, Noah is executive-producing the series, The Librarians.

Executive Producer Carlton Cuse currently has three television series on the air – Bates Motel (A&E), The Strain (FX), and The Returned (A&E).  His earlier work includes a string of fan favorites, including The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. (Fox), Nash Bridges (CBS) and ABC’s Lost.  His incredible body of work over the years has earned him the coveted Dan Curtis Legacy Award (named after the legendary producer of genre television classics Dark Shadows, The Night Stalker, Trilogy of Terror, Dracula, andFrankenstein).

The Academy will honor Grant Gustin with the Breakthrough Performance Awardfor his dynamic portrayal of The Flash, as young Barry Allen who winds up with super powers and a classic secret identity.

The Life Career Award will go to Robert Cobert who has been composing music since 1956, including such notable genre themes such as Dark Shadows and The Night Stalker.

The science fiction series, Continuum, has captured the imaginations of genre fans since 2012. The series, created by Simon Webster, which stars Rachel Nichols, Victor Webster, Erik Knudsen, and Lexa Doig will be ending its successful run later this year on SyFy.  The Academy is bestowing this fan favorite with a Special Recognition Award.

The Academy will be dedicating this year’s awards show in memory of legendary icon Leonard Nimoy who passed away earlier in the year.
