Hey there my friends I am back with another awards nominations rundown with the 46th Annual Saturn Awards. As you’ve seen over the course of the past year, I’ve posted a LOT of these kinds of things because with the pandemic still darkening our doors, its better to keep you entertained inside the confines of your home watching videos on the streaming channels, cable networks or even traditional television. These nominations come care of The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films and since we talk about a lot of that stuff on PiercingMetal.com I am posting this awards show stuff here as opposed to over on “The Chronicles”. The pandemic found the time window extended a little bit as well from July 2019 to November 2020 and even included the streaming and VOD (video on demand) stuff as well. Let’s take a look.
