“Inception” leads Saturn Awards noms with nine


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It felt like Christopher Nolan pulled the idea for his mind-bending “Inception” from the deep depths of outer space, so it’s fitting that the blockbuster with a brain would be honored by the Saturn Awards with a pack-leading nine nominations.

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films announced the nominations for the 37th Annual Saturn Awards, and Nolan’s dream-infesting thriller topped all with nine noms. Right behind “Inception” was the horror remake “Let Me In,” as well as Disney’s “Tron: Legacy,” each with seven nods. Clint Eastwood’s meditation on the afterlife, “Hereafter,” received six noms, while a handful of films including “Alice in Wonderland,” “Black Swan,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” and “Shutter Island” earned 5 nominations each.

In the television categories, Frank Darabont’s zombie-drama “The Walking Dead” (AMC) came to life with 6 nominations. “Breaking Bad” (AMC), “Lost” (ABC) and “Fringe” (Fox) tied with 5 nominations. “Leverage” (TNT), “True Blood” (HBO) earned 4 apiece, followed by “Dexter” (Showtime) and “V” (ABC) with 3 and “The Closer” (TNT), “Smallville” (CW), and Spartacus: Blood and Sand” (Starz) with 2.

The 37th Annual Saturn Awards will take place this June in Burbank.
