Re: 2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Animated Film

I haven't seen any of said films. I'm voting for Horton because the thought of it makes me feel less nauseated than the thoughts of the other movies. Horton doesn't give me a headache. (Free joke for all you med-school students out there)

I especially dislike Bolt, in which Jon Stewart sings Macarena. I've heard. God that was hilarious.

Re: 2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Animated Film

amazign that everyone hasny only picked Wall-E. jury's still out, I guess, but I would imagine that Wall-E will sweep this category. Havent really been an animated movie watcher in past years, but its growing on me as I get older. So far of this category, though, I've only seen the Madagascar one.

ACtually - im quite surprised no real scifi/horror anime type films made the list. Must be hockey moms voting for this stuff.

Wouldn't the Resident Evil one come under this?

Aaaaaaaaand desipte Wall-E being a thematic leap forward for Western animated cinema, I'm going with Bolt cos it was fun so nyah.

Re: 2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Animated Film

it irritates me how they left RE out, but I am assuming it is because it didnt fall within the dates they were judging? Their calendar is very sketchy, imo, and you have some films on there that seem old - meantime, the newer films (ones in late 2008), go unnoticed and are not on the list.

I think their criterion for nomination is very lax (actually I know it is), but they still remain the only real American "last word" on SciFi awards. It makes me wonder if other countries have these types of awards, and what their lists would look like. A discriminating list, I mean.

No. There is a Hugo category for "Best Dramatic Presentation." If there is a "last word" it's that.

oh come on. you know the Hugo Awards for books and written works - its not like they are dedicated solely to cinema. And last year they even chose something called.....Stardust? Looked like utter tripe. Was last year really that bad a year for Science Fiction cinema?

Too many categories and too many nominees in each category. There generally aren't more than two or three decent SF movies in a good year.
