The 43rd Annual Saturn Awards were held last night in Burbank California, and last year’s Star Trek Beyond was nominated in four categories. Beyond took home the award for Best Makeup, accepted by Monica Huppert and Joel Harlow. This can go a small way to making up for what many see as a snub for Star Trek, when it lost out to Suicide Squad at the Academy Awards earlier this year.
Star Trek Beyond was also nominated for Best Science Fiction Film Release, Best Actor (Chris Pine), and Best Supporting Actor (Zachary Quinto). Those awards went to Rogue One for Best Science Fiction Film Release, Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool for Best Actor, and John Goodman of 10 Cloverfield Lane for Best Supporting Actor.
More Trek at the Saturns
CBS’ 2016 Blu-ray release of Star Trek: The Animated Series was nominated for Best DVD or Blu-ray Television Release, but it lost out to Hannibal
It was a good night for Star Trek producer JJ Abrams. As a producer he won Best Thriller Film for 10 Cloverfield Lane, and he is executive producer for 11.22.63 and Westworld, which won for Best Presentation on Television Production and Best Science Fiction Television Series, respectively.
Composer Michael Giacchino, who scored all three Bad Robot Star Trek films, including Beyond, did not get any love for his Star Trek work but was nominated for both Rogue One and Doctor Strange yet lost out to Justin Hurwitz for La La Land.
A full list of winners can be found at saturnawards.org.
As for celebs, the only Star Trek star on hand was The Next Generation’s Denise Crosby who was one of the presenters.
