'Avengers,' 'Dark Knight Rises' Win Saturn Awards


We're well into the new summer movie season, but never forget about the epic year that was 2012. The year "The Dark Knight" trilogy came to a close. The year "Marvel's The Avengers" assembled and destroyed all of the box-office records. (Exaggeration, but you get the point.)

Well, the 39th Annual Saturn Awards did not forget about either of those movies. "Avengers" in particular walked away from the awards show with four top honors: best sci-fi film, best special effects, best director for Joss Whedon, and best supporting actor for Clark Gregg. "Dark Knight Rises," meanwhile, snagged a best supporting actress award for Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle.

On the television side of the Saturn Awards, "The Walking Dead" represented comic book adaptations by winning Best Syndicated/Cable Television series, and Best Supporting Actress for Laurie Holden, who played the ill-fated Andrea for three seasons of the AMC drama.

Here's looking forward to the 2016 edition of the Saturn Awards, when "Marvel's The Avengers 2" sweeps the whole show, lands Clark Gregg a Best Supporting Actor award for his turn as Vision, and Ruth Wilson picks up Supporting Actress for her role as Carol Danvers. We can dream...
