2007 Saturn Awards

Well the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has had their Saturn Awards and Superman Returns walked away with a large number of them. Likewise Heroes got a bunch of the awards as well.

The Award for Best Science Fiction Film went to Children of Men though. I'm hoping to have my review of that finished for tomorrow - but for now, all I have to say about it getting this award is "meh."

What's sad is that I can't think of another Science Fiction film released last year that could have won it instead. V for Vendetta maybe.

Anyways, a full listing of the award winners can be found here.

Beyond that, I have to agree with their decisions to reward the folks involved with Superman Returns and Heroes. And of course, the decision to give Natalie Portman the Best Actress V for Vendetta. That was a brilliant performance.

As for other odds and ends, I'm reading Jo Walton's Tooth and Claw now, as well as Dark Horse's Legacy: Broken TPB. So expect those reviews, plus the one for Children of Men to be up sometime very soon. Additionally, Pan's Labyrinth should be out on DVD soon, and I'll probably go rent that to see what the fuss is all about.
