Fringe, True Blood, The Walking Dead Among Saturn Award Winners

The 37th Saturn Awards were held on Thursday night and several of TV’s most popular science fiction, fantasy, and horror shows picked up hardware. Fringe was the big winner with 3 awards, one for Best Network Series, a repeat win for Anna Torv in Best Actress in Television, and one for John Noble in Best Supporting Actor in Television. Noble recently picked up the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Fringe wasn’t the only show to take home honors at the Saturn Awards, though. Stephen Moyer from True Blood received his first Saturn Award for his role as Bill Compton, while his co-star Joe Manganiello won Best Guest Starring Role on Television for portraying protective werewolf Alcide on the hugely successful HBO drama. Ahead of its July 17th season 4 premiere, Breaking Bad walked off with the award for Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series, its second win in a row in this category. Other TV winners included Lucy Lawless (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) for Best Supporting Actress in Television, AMC’s The Walking Dead for Best Television Presentation, and sci-fi classic The Twilight Zone for Best DVD Television Release (Seasons 1 & 2 on Blu-Ray).

The Saturn Awards were originally created by Dr. Ronald A. Reed to recognize films in the areas of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, which would often go unnoticed by more traditional Hollywood award shows. Eventually they started recognizing home video and television. If you want to view the full results of the 2011 Saturn Awards, head over to their website.
