About Saturn Awards
The non-profit organization was founded in 1972 by noted film historian, Dr. Donald A. Reed. His goal was to find an outlet to honor and recognize genre entertainment often overlooked by mainstream awards organizations. The Saturn Awards is considered the premier award for the entertainment we dub “exaggerated and/or enhanced reality”. The scope of the genres we honor has been broadened in recent years running the gamut from dark and edgy entertainment to colorful and life-affirming fable-esque slices of life.
