Awards Watch: Saturns 2008

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films were thoroughly Enchanted when it came time to hand out their Saturn Awards last night. The live action fairy tale won three Saturns, including Best Fantasy Film and Best Actress for Amy Adams. The remaining top film prizes went to Cloverfield (Sci-Fi), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (Horror), 300 (Action/Adventure/Thriller), Eastern Promises (International) and Ratatouille (Animated).

No Country for Old Men's Javier Bardem added another trophy to his crowded mantel as Best Supporting Actor. Other acting honors went to I Am Legend's Will Smith, The Mist's Marcia Gay Harden and August Rush's Freddie Highmore, while 300's Zack Snyder and Ratatouille's Brad Bird took home the directing and writing awards, respectively.

On the television side, Lost found four Saturns, for Best Network Series and acting wins for Matthew Fox, Michael Emerson and Elizabeth Mitchell. See the comments section below for a quick look at all the winners.
