Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Walking Dead Dominate 2015 Saturn Awards
The Emmys will most likely ignore genre shows as usual, but that's why we have the Saturn Awards, so deserving sci-fi, fantasy, and horror can get the recognition it sorely lacks. The winners have been announced (many of which are in line with our Dream Sci-Fi Academy Awards), and Interstellar took the most awards home with six wins, while Guardians of the Galaxy trailed close behind with four, and The Walking Dead dominated the television categories with three wins.

Interstellar technically won the most awards, but only one was in a main category. Granted, it was a biggie, as Christopher Nolan's controversial sci-fi epic took home the Best Science Fiction Film Release award. Its other wins were mostly in technical categories, with the exception of Best Screenplay. Jonathan Nolan accepted his award with one of the best quotes of the night: "'Interstellar' is the story of a man who goes on an arduous journey, comes back 100 years later to find that nobody remembers him or gives a f–k about what he was doing. It's a pretty good metaphor for writing a studio film."

Guardians of the Galaxy won Best Comic Book to Film Release, Best Director, and Best Actor. Pratt couldn't make it to the ceremony, so fellow winner James Gunn accepted it for him with a predictably hilarious message from Pratt: "James Gunn is the future. He's a genius. I tried every day to do one thing: Give myself over to the creative vision of the man who is up there accepting this award on my behalf. He will always be my trusted leader and friend… and ladies, he is single. Right? Are you? We haven't talked in a couple weeks. It doesn't matter, he is single tonight. I'd like to open the bidding at $1,000 for James. Ha ha, is he blushing? James, ask the audience if you are red."

The Walking Dead, meanwhile, dominated the television categories, winning Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series, Best Actor for Andrew Lincoln (tied with Hannibal's Hugh Dancy), and Best Supporting Actress for Melissa McBride. McBride shared an adorable picture with fellow nominee Emily Kinney:



Aw. RIP Beth.

The Flash trailed close behind, winning Best Superhero Television Series and Best Guest Star for Wentworth Miller. Grant Gustin also took home one of the special awards for Breakthrough Performance.
