The nominations for the 40th Annual Saturn Awards have been announced. While Gravity and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug lead with eight nominations each, last summer’s Man of Steel is up for two awards. The epic blockbuster, which paved the way for a long-awaited DC Cinematic Universe, is nominated for “Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture”. Fellow 2013 comic book adaptations Iron Man 3, The Wolverine, and Thor: The Dark World are also contending for the award.
Additionally, Dylan Sprayberry – who played a young Clark Kent in Man of Steel – is nominated for “Best Performance by a Younger Actor”. Others up for that award include Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game), Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie), Saoirse Ronan (How I Live Now), and Sophie Nelisse (The Book Thief).
The other DC property present at the Saturn Awards is Arrow, The CW’s excellent television series focusing on Green Arrow. The show is nominated for the “Best Youth-Oriented Television Series” award, alongside fellow CW series’ Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and The Tomorrow People. Also up for the award are ABC’s Pretty Little Liars and MTV’s Teen Wolf.
The Saturn Awards will take place in June. For more details and the full list of nominees, click HERE.
