The 46th Annual Saturn Awards nominations have been announced, and three Apple TV+ original shows have received nominations. This year marks the first time Apple TV+ has been eligible for the Saturn Awards which are presented annually by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films. The Academy was founded in 1972.
The Saturn Awards were initially created to honor science fiction, fantasy, and horror on film at a time when the genres lacked recognition within Hollywood. Since then, The Saturn Awards have grown to recognize predictions in other dramatic genres, as well as television and home media releases.
