Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror film award nominees announced

The Dark Knight movie continues it’s great run. The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominations for their 35th Annual Saturn Awards and the Dark Knight was the front runner with 11 nominations.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button had nine total nods, Iron Man had eight, Valkyrie seven and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as well as Changeling each had six nominations.

Up for Best Horror Film? The Happening, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Quarantine, Splinter and The Strangers. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to imagine The Happening or The Mummy getting the nod (I must go rent Quarantine this weekend…).

Mind you, The Day The Earth Stood Still is up for Best Sci Fi flick.

The awards show will take place on June 25, at a site to be announced. You can read more about the awards and the Academy here.
