The 2013 Saturn Awards were handed out Wednesday night, June 26, presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. (For those of you without the complete collection of limited edition "Battlestar Galactica" commemorative plates, the Saturn Awards are basically the genre equivalent of the Academy Awards.) "The Avengers" was the big winner on the movie side of things, while "Breaking Bad" dominated in the TV categories.
Named the best science fiction film of the year, "The Avengers" also picked up awards for best supporting actor (Clark Gregg), best director (Joss Whedon), and best special effects (Janek Sirrs, Jeff White, Guy Williams, and Dan Sudick).
Elsewhere in the film categories, "Life of Pi" won for best fantasy film, "Skyfall" took home best action/adventure film, and "Cabin in the Woods" nabbed best horror film/thriller. Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway both added to their awards collections, with Lawrence winning best actress for "The Hunger Games" and Hathaway, best supporting actress for her portrayal of Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises." Matthew McConaughey received an acting nod for the barely seen "Killer Joe."
"Breaking Bad" cleaned up in the TV categories, winning best presentation on television, best actor -- an award Bryan Cranston shared with "The Following" star Kevin Bacon -- and best supporting actor (Jonathan Banks).
Real on for the full list of winners.
