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.

Hey there my friends, its the time of the year for the nominees for the annual Saturn Awards and while this celebration has been around for a number of years we’ve only begun sharing their updates here on PiercingMetal with the 2018 event. If you’d like to examine last years winners you can click HERE since it was quick interesting. Now the reason for being supportive of these awards is based on how much they play to the interests of our fellow Pop Culture enthusiasts. I leave the coverage of The Oscars, the full Grammy Awards and numerous others over to “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” side of my creative fence. Before we continue along, the newbies to this particular topic should know that unlike The Oscars, these awards lend strong focus to the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres. They even include a number of action films and more. They are curated by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Let’s take a look at this years nominees.

For as long as I can remember, I have been an absolute geek for the superhero action-adventure types of series along with comic books and I’ve reflected that interest here on PiercingMetal for a number of years as well. Some of you might remember when we had the side blog called “PiercingMetal Musings” which was created to shine the spotlight on that stuff but with the 2014 full conversion to WordPress, all of those items were integrated into the main website to make this outlet all the more entertaining. This will be my first go at documenting this particular awards show as part of my constant effort to keep you entertained. The Saturn Awards are presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films and they celebrate the best in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and other genres belonging to genre fiction in film, television, home media releases, and local theatre productions (slightly paraphrased from their Wiki entry). Let’s take a look at this year’s nominees.
