Supergirl Nominated for 44th Saturn Awards

Good morning everyone, I am excited to bring you another guest column from one of you, our valued users! Today, Chrystal Eve is going to share with you her experiences working with the Saturn Awards and remind us all that our favorite Girl of Steel is up for yet another award this year! Check out the articles below!

Melissa Benoist is a nominee this year for the 44th Saturn awards. She is being considered for “Best Actress on a television series.” The show “Supergirl” has also been nominated for “Best Superhero Television series.”

The Saturn Awards

Many people feel they do not have a voice when it comes to various awards given to performers in the Arts. There is one award academy that I can honestly say gave me a chance to participate in the complex activities surrounding their awards. Their name is The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films (a non-profit organization). The organization was founded in 1972 and has been bestowing awards for 46 years. The award they provide to entertainers is called the Saturn Award. Some may not be familiar with the Saturn Awards, if so, the reason may be because they are currently not televised, like most other award shows. This Academy hopes to one day find a production company who may wish to air their awards show on television.

The Academy welcomes anyone who is interested in shows/films of science fiction to join. There is a small fee which completely goes toward the actual production of the awards show. This past year I was given the privilege of working with the Academy as a junior member of the television committee. I learned the process that the Academy uses to ensure that all programming falling within the Academy’s genre categories, for the timeframe being reviewed, has an all-inclusive scope. This ensures that no show/film is missed in the review process. Please take the time to go to the homepage of the Saturn awards and possibly consider becoming a member and giving yourself a voice in an award distribution that welcomes your voice and your vote.

Let us know what you think of the awards and if you're planning to vote in the comments below and in the forum! If you'd like to write a guest piece for be sure to become a supporter and visit the support page!

Thought I should mention that Supergirl's Odette Annable is also nominated this year for a Saturn Award, in the category of Best Supporting Actress on a Television Series.

Very nice! I hope the show, the cast and the crew get their well-deserved recognition. Fingers crossed. :-)
