Last night the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films held the 30th Annual Saturn Awards in Los Angeles, honoring this past year’s best genre movies, television shows and video entertainment and singling out the noteworthy efforts of performers and creators for these fantastic visions.

Peter Jackson’s final chapter in the THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy of films, THE RETURN OF THE KING, took home 8 Saturns in all including top honors in Best Fantasy Film, Best Actor (Elijah Wood), Best Supporting Actor (Sean Astin) and Best Director. The extended edition DVD of THE TWO TOWERS was also singled out for Best DVD Special Edition Release.

Ironically, WB’s now-cancelled television series ANGEL received the second-most Saturns with 4 in total. Lead actor David Boreanaz took home an award for Best Actor in a Television Series while James Marsters won for Best Supporting Actor (Television) and Amy Acker for Best Supporting Actress (Television). The show also tied with CSI : CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION for Best Network Series.

Scott Speedman (UNDERWORLD) was on-hand to accept his award for the male Face of the Future 2003 while Melissa George from (ALIAS) was unavailable to accept her award for the female Face of the Future.

    Wow, four awards and another for firefly, the WB was right to cancel such a show. How could they ever hope to make money on a multi-award-winning series like Angel ? Looks like they got out just in time before Angel won any more awards, otherwise they might have had to shell out for a trophy cabitnet at the sum of $50 from your local Ikea, and that might have put them into the red...

    I know it’s the lowest form of wit, but as every day goes by there just seems to be more and more evidence that canceling angel was the worst dicision in television history - yet another angel related award headed for the WB then.

    I think Alexis has been doing better work this year than James.

    The W B is cancelling the wrong shows, how can they cancel shows that win awards and the worst of it is they have no pubs(and manage to win).
