Saturn Awards 2019: Avengers Endgame and Game of Thrones lead nominations
The nominations for Saturn Awards 2019 have been announced. The awards are given by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films and were initially limited to the films of these genres but have since been expanded to TV shows and digital series.
As expected, two of the biggest events in the pop culture of last decade — Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones final season — are leading this year’s nominations. Endgame in particular nabbed an incredible 14 nominations, followed by Game of Thrones season 8 with 9 nominations.
