The Hunger Games recently nominated for Saturn Awards for Best Science Fiction Film category, along with Jennifer Lawrence, who was nominated for Best Actress for the Hunger Games.
Excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter:
The Saturns give props to so-called “genre” movies, a term that encompasses sci-fi, fantasy, comic-book adaptations and horror films. In the Hollywood days of yore, these types of movies were given second-class status, but in the geekified pop culture of the 21st century, they are the films that often receive the most lavish attention.
The nominations for best science fiction films included Marvel’s The Avengers, Fox’sChronicle, Warners’ Cloud Atlas, Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games, Sony’s Looper and Fox’sPrometheus.
The Saturns are awarded in 20 film categories, nine TV categories and four in-home entertainment categories. The awards ceremony date and location will be announced in the coming weeks.
