Rogue One Tops List Of Saturn Awards Nominees

For everyone who thinks Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Deadpool were far better movies than both La La Land and Moonlight, there's a far more attractive option than the Oscars.

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announced the nominations for the 43rd annual Saturn Awards. The awards cover both film and TV, with a focus on movies and shows you actually watch. The winners will be announced June 28 in Burbank, Calif.

Rogue One received the most nominations with 11, followed by Steven Spielberg's fantasy drama The BFG and Marvel's Doctor Strange with 10 nominations each. And although Ryan Reynolds didn't receive an Oscar nomination for Deadpool (despite his best efforts), he's up for Best Actor at the Saturn Awards.
