Chandler Riggs, Mads Mikkelsen, and ‘Hannibal’ among Saturn Award winners

Carl -The 2014 Saturn Awards are one of the most prestigious organizations out there when it comes to genre entertainment, so anyone who picks up a trophy from them has to feel more than proud. It’s getting recognized from within a community that is extremely passionate, but also choose about what is good genre material and what is not.

Ironically, many of the winners in the television field this year are among the same sort that we are cheering for to get at least Emmy nominations when these picks are announced next month.

Take a look below if you want to get a full sense of all the TV victor’s from this year’s ceremony:

Best Network Television Series

  • “Hannibal” and “Revolution” (tie)

In the end, it’s nice for “Revolution” to get a nod for its last year on TV, but we would’ve went with “Hannibal” without question.

Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series

  • “The Walking Dead”

You just cannot argue with success.

Best Television Presentation of a Limited Series

  • “Breaking Bad”

Wait, since when is this a limited series? Is it defined as such just because there was a concise end planned?

Best Youth-Oriented Series on Television

  • “Teen Wolf”

One thing that the Saturn Awards do that we know some want to see is that they scale honors to a variety of different shows. “Teen Wolf” has a passionate following, for example, but its target audience keeps it from Emmy love.

Best Actor on Television

  • Mads Mikkelsen, “Hannibal”

There are around three or four acceptable choices here, and this is one of them.

Best Actress on Television

  • Vera Farmiga, “Bates Motel”

Also a worthy choice. “Bates Motel” was great this season, but seems like it is going to be shunned by many.

Best Supporting Actor on Television

  • Aaron Paul – “Breaking Bad”

Sooner or later, won’t he run out of places to put these?

Best Supporting Actress on Television

  • Melissa McBride, “The Walking Dead”

This makes us so, so happy. We’ve been campaigning hard for her to get an Emmy nod this year.

Best Younger Actor on Television

  • Chandler Riggs, “The Walking Dead”

We’ve also been campaigning hard for Chandler, as have you judging by some of the votes in the poll.

Best Guest Star on Television

  • Robert Forster, “Breaking Bad”

Given he was only in one episode bringing things to Walter White, Forster did a ton without a lot of screen time.
