LOST Wins Two Saturn Awards

Just as I expected, LOST rocked the Saturn Awards with another Best Network Television Series win. Not only that, Josh Holloway won the Best Actor on Television award, even beating Matthew Fox! LOST's Season 5 DVD set also won the Best DVD Television Release. Congrats!!!

Fringe also grabbed two awards: Anna Torv won the Best Actress on Television award (beating, among others, Evangeline Lilly) and Leonard Nimoy won the Best Guest Starring Role on Television award (beating, among others, Mark Pellegrino). Fringe's co-creators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman also received the George Pal Memorial Award for their "unending imagination and dedication to creating amazing genre-bending blockbusters at the movies and on television".

Julie Benz (Dexter) beat Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST) and Morena Baccarin (V) for the Best Supporting Actress on Television award. Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul also beat LOST's Jeremy Davies and Michael Emerson and Fringe's John Noble for the Best Supporting Actor on Television award.

Avatar swept the film awards, including the acting honours. I think Inglourious Basterds' Melanie Laurent (Best Actress) and Christoph Waltz (Best Supporting Actor) should have won their respective categories, though. Or is it just because I'm nuts about Inglourious Basterds? Hehe... And, oh, Inglourious Basterds won the Best Action/Adventure/Thriller Film award! Woot woot!!!

So if the Emmys ignore LOST, its awesome actors, or both, I won't feel so bad. I have more respect for the Saturn Awards now than for the Emmys because the former gives LOST the recognition it deserves.
