Saturn Awards are apparently a thing now

I've never seen Fringe, but it seems to have won some awards for being dead good and that.

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films 37th Saturn Awards are, as it turns out, kind of a big deal. They have many leather-bound books and their apartment smells of rich mahogany, etc, etc. I didn't really know this until they started to feature quite prominently in Google news searches, but it seems people care what happens at them.

Guess I might as well copy and paste the TV-related ones here then.

I of course agree wholeheartedly that The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad deserve awards for services to awesomeness. Can't say I've seen a minute of any of the other shows though. What do you want from me? Informed opinions?
