BSG Wins Saturn Awards… and so do others

On Wednesday night, the Academy of Science-Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films held their 35th annual award show in Burbank, California. More importantly they realized the greatness that is BSG as it won 3 awards in the TV category.

  • Best Cable Series – Battlestar Galactica
  • Best Actor – Edward James Olmos (Admiral Adama, Battlestar Galactica)
  • Best Actress – Mary McDonnell (President Roslin, Battlestar Galactica)

Well deserved awards for what is was arguably the best show on television. Both Olmos and McDonnell deserved these award as they carried Battlestar Galactica in the last season. Their characters were portrayed amazingly. If anyone saw their last scene together in BSG they know the award was well deserved. Too bad the Emmys haven’t given BSG any love in the past. Keep your fingers crossed that this year might be different.

If anyone is interested in the overall results of the Saturn Awards they are after the jump.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both
    educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
