The 39th Annual Saturn Award Nominees

The Saturn Awards are presented by The Academy of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Films, which also rewards action films as well. These are genres generally ignored by the Academy, although films like Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, The Impossible, Prometheus, The Avengers, Life of Pi, Django Unchained, Skyfall, The Hobbit, and yes Les Miserables (which apparently is an action/adventure film, something I was unaware of) managed to cross over to Academy Award nominations as well.
