The 2011 Saturn Award Nominations Are In

ON

George Clooney versus the Wolfman?!

It appears the organizers behind the Saturn Awards – a yearly recognition of the best in sci-fi, horror and fantasy – have added “thriller” to the Best Horror category, broadening the scope of who has been nominated this year.

Yes, the nominations are out. And up for the “Best Horror/Thriller” award you’ve got: Kick-Ass sitting alongside Let Me In. Black Swan, The Wolf Man, The American and Shutter Island.

This is probably the only awards ceremony where you might see a George Clooney film vying for an award next to The Wolf Man.

Weird.

Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz are vying for Best Performance By a Younger Actor for their respective turns in Let Me In. Meanwhile, The Walking Dead is up for Best Television Presentation.

See the full list of nominees via this link and stay tuned for our coverage from the event in June.
